Georgia’s Valley Exploration Run – 11 to 13 July 2019
Be the first to Discover Georgia’s wilderness by running through its pristine trails. This trip takes the path of Truso Valley and will be the first of its kind as nobody has ever ran through it before. So I’m looking for some company to double the fun! We also will spend some time walking around Juta valley and other sightseeing attractions.
I’m an extreme triathlete, Ultra-runner, Public speaker, Engineer, and an entrepreneur who’s passionate about sharing experiences with people. Check my facebook profile to get to know me better!
I have never been on this trip before, so we will be exploring the place together. Nevertheless, I have a wide range of experience in organizing similar trips and will be responsible for all the planning and bookings. This exploration run is perfectly suited for Dubai residents looking to experience a unique athletic adventure over the weekend.
