The Tarptautinis Sportinio Éjimo Festivalis Alytus is held annually in Alytus, Lithuania. This event has been created just about 4 decades ago when 19 athletes from Alytus, Birštonas and Druskininkai took part in this event. Founder and organizer Kastytis Pavilonis is the reason why this event exists. Since 1975 it is a growing event and internationally becoming more important in the racewalking community.
The track is a one km loop, which is flat with smooth surface. There are 2 tight turns one each very 500 m. Nothing wrong with the track
There is also some cash for the winners. Find here some more info about the race, just download the: RACE MANUAL
I also found out that they track the best records in Alytus since 1975.
Quite interesting and who knows who is going to be next on the list.
