The month of January has begun, which means that it's time to look at the next races, which will open a new running season.

Until this year, the Ukrainian running community was left without such January starts as "Mad Hare", "Kharkiv New Year Run" and "Friends' Run". But the race organizers did not leave the running community without January starts. And prepared for the two interesting trail races and one road cross.
