Hundreds of people have signed up to participate in the Trail of Hope, a 22-hour trail-running event between March 3 and 4 that goes through parts of central and western Kosovo that were impacted by the 1998-99 war. The run is being organized in honor of the tenth anniversary of the country’s independence and the twentieth commemoration of the Kosovo War.
The event received social media support by people such as Kosovo Ambassador to the US Vlora Citaku, judoka Majlinda Kelmendi, and Rita Ora.
Although the full length of the trail is 100 km, the first of its kind in Kosovo, it is divided into four segments of different lengths and difficulties.
“It goes through parts of the country that were significant during the war: refugee paths, resistance points. It starts in Prekaz at the Jashari family memorial, continues through Gllogjan, and ends in Koshare at the memorial complex,” said Arineta Mula, executive director of the Kosova Trail Running Association, KTRA, which is organizing the event.
