Goals and objectives

Development and promotion of unicycling in Kazakhstan.

Popularization of a healthy lifestyle.

Enhance participants' sportsmanship.

Development of domestic and foreign tourism.

The basis of the festival is to promote a particular discipline of unicycling: off-road riding. The first stage of the festival is only open for unicyclists who had pre-registered for Almaty Trail; “Almaty Trail”; the other stages are open to all comers and are aimed at the popularization of unicycling. The first part of the festival is restricted because it will take place in a remote mountainous area and is potentially unsafe.
