Chestnut Run, an annual sports event in Kyiv with 25-year-old history, is more than just one race.

The run that took place in Kyiv on May 28 included five races: 10 meters for the toddlers, 300 meters for kids up to 15 years, 300 meters called “for the bravest” for people in wheelchairs, and two races, 5 kilometers each, for professional athletes and for running amateurs.

Every year since 1993, Chestnut Run is held as part of Days of Kyiv celebration, during the last weekend of May.

Apart from sports, Chestnut Run promotes charity – the organizers raise money for the Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Center in Kyiv.
