For just over a decade, TREX has been organizing several independent, non-profit outdoor sports and recreation events that annually form a full calendar of mountain running races. Without a doubt, there is no running event in N.Macedonia in which TREX members are not involved as co-organizers, helpers, advisors, volunteers, but above all as participants.

Mountain running (trail running) is a sports discipline that is performed in a natural environment, usually through mountains, forests, fields, canyons, deserts.
These endurance races take place on all kinds of tracks and surfaces, with a special emphasis on respect for nature.
In mountain running races, distances from 20 km up to 300+ km are usually overcome.
The most typical are ULTRA-RACES (Ultra-trail) of 60km, 80km, 100km and the cult distance of 100 miles (170 km).


TREX is a proud member of the International Mountain Running Association since its foundation in 2014. Our races are verified by ITRA and are organized according to international safety standards.


The purpose of this platform is to promote a more sustainable practice of outdoor sports, focusing on the impact on the natural environment in order to improve the management of natural resources, preserve biodiversity and advocate for a more sustainable society.


The UTMB World Series gives all mountain runners the chance to experience the adventure of the world's most famous mountain race held in the heart of the Alps around Mont Blanc. TREX races carry qualifying points for this series with the aim that in the medium term one of our events will become one of the 40 leading trail events in the most incredible locations around the world.
