On the eve of the start of the European Trailrun Camp, the Russian project participants spoke about the preparations for the event. “In order not to miss anything on the project, I equip myself in full. I take with me 3 pairs of shoes with a GORE-TEX membrane, 2-3 sets of clothes and, without fail, pants and a jacket with GORE-TEX. It is not a fact that I will have time to use everything, but these things should always be in reserve - as a last resort, I can share with someone, ”Petrov says about the equipment.
