What you'll do

We will start with warm-ups at the famous Kyiv River Port to be ready for running for 50 mins in moderate pace. Run across the pedestrian bridge to the Truhaniv island and following the promenade of Dnipro river, we will pass the People's Friendship Arch. From that we will climb a hundred stairs to the Mariinskiy Park and see the Parliament of Ukraine. Then we will run near the Memorial to Holodomor victims with a stunning view to the left bank of the river and continuing to the open air museum of the Second World War. Turning around, we will continue running to the historic Kyiv Pechersk Lavra with cave monasteries inside. We will finish our run by passing the government district and Maidan square, going back to the River Port. We will make short stops on each of the spots to make photos.

Every time I travel to the different city, I enjoy exploring new places by running. But most of the time it happens on crowded and polluted streets, because green places on the map not always as green in real. I wish to have someone local to run with.
However, I know a plenty of awesome locations in my home city Kyiv.
I'm a triathlete and runner who already completed an IronMan, few marathons and dozen of other competitions on the streets of Kyiv and beyond.
So we can get together for a good run and I'll show you the best places in Kyiv.

Had a lovely morning run with Andreii, really nice views during the tour and I learnt a lot about living in Kiev and Ukraine. Andreii was a great tour guide and I recommend everyone travelling to Kiev to experience this!

A few years back, several Ukrainians traveling in NY reached out to me about an interest to run with Ukrainian running community in Central Park. The run was fun and the people I met were interesting. When I travel to Ukraine, I wanted to have similar experience since I haven’t been running in Kiev and didn’t know trails and good routes. The guide I met was to my surprise one of those Ukrainian fellas who I once met in Central Park. Andriy took me for a 12 mile run through Truhaniv island and though he wasn’t expecting to do such a long run, he went out of his way to go a long way to meet my expectation. I would highly recommend Andriy as an experience host. His English was fluent, he can maintain a good running pace and would certainly show you the unique places in Kiev you wouldn’t find in a tourist books. Hope meeting him again in a future
