For those who have conquered all of this year’s districts, Puma has prepared special gifts – branded t-shirts. As for the top three runners, they received gift certificates.

Puma Marketing Manager Evghenii Martinov has decided to print on the gift t-shirts a special symbol, namely the Star, which appears on the football jerseys as part of the badge as a sign of important trophies the team has previously won.

Present at the event were athletes who received t-shirts with two Champions stars. The double symbol aimed to single out the athletes who participated in the ultramarathon for the second year in a row.
