My acquaintance with the running events that take place in the Brovary forestry took place in autumn 2018 with the participation in the half marathon "Autumn Leaf". Since then, I have been able to admire not only the autumn beauty of the Brovary Forest but also to see how the spring forest wakes up after hibernation. The final stage of acquaintance with the trails of Brovary forestry was the participation in the eco-trail "Colors of Autumn", which passed through the forest dressed in autumn colors.
You could register for the eco-trail "Autumn Colors" through the official website of the half marathon runbrovary.com.ua. The organizers prepared three distances for the participants of the competition: 21, 12, and 5.5 kilometers. The route of the main distance of 21 kilometers consisted of two circles passing through the forest.
As for food outlets, the distance was three 5, 10, and 15 kilometers, respectively.
Two years ago, in October, I went for the first time on a trail half marathon through the territory of Brovary Forestry. He admired the spring beauty of forestry during his participation in the trail "Spring Forest". This autumn brought the autumn colors of Brovary Forestry to my running calendar for the last time in the form of the eco-trail "Autumn Colors", which became for me the third running event I visit in the Brovary Forest.
The beginning of another running Sunday morning began with a trip to a location quite familiar to me, Brovarsky forestry, which for many years in mid-autumn gathers running enthusiasts who want to conquer the sandy trails of the autumn forest. For me, the trip was the last during which I will conquer the trails of Brovary forestry as a participant in a running event. Therefore, as on the day of the first acquaintance with the trails of Brovarsky forest, two years ago I had a distance of 21 kilometers through the autumn forest.
The running holiday of the eco-trail "Autumn Colors" began at 9 o'clock in the morning in front of the forester's house from the start of the main distance of the trail - 21 kilometers. Participants of the half marathon had to conquer two laps, the route of which passed through the sandy paths of forestry.
The first part of the trail started briskly for me, as the first 2 miles passed along quite familiar trails. Running through my favorite crossroads of Brovarsky Forest, I was flooded with pleasant memories from 2018 and the trail "Autumn Leaf". Of course, it was a bit unfortunate, as the organizers of the eco-trail "Autumn Colors" approached the marking of the route quite responsibly, which meant, no matter how much I wanted to, but it was quite difficult to get off the route.
I managed to overcome the first half of the half marathon quite well - 57 minutes. As for the second part of the half-marathon "Autumn Colors", here I decided to slow down a bit, and for the last time to enjoy the beauty of Brovary forestry and small sandhills that were found on its trails. 02 hours and 27 minutes after the start, my sneakers crossed the finish line for the last time in the territory of Brovary Forestry.
Eco-trail "Autumn Colors", although a young running event that emerged after the events of 2018, but for its short history has become a good complement to the trail races of Ukraine and the trails of Brovary Forestry. The eco-trail got a good organization and a rather interesting route with nice markings.
In my memory, the eco-trail "Autumn Colors" will remain an interesting trail, which beautifully summed up my adventures in the Brovary forestry, a location that for the past three years has given me only one positive impression of running through the forestry. Although the adventures did not start well enough, their finale turned out quite good.
