If Road Race is one of the easiest way to practice track and field, finding good quality races is not always as easy. With so many different events through Europe, it can be difficult to find the race that fits your needs.


Some runners wish for races with small amount of competitors, and some others look for events with additional range of service.


All the competitors must have the feeling that their health and safety are guaranteed, on a track precisly measured, with nothing else to think about except performance.
