250 km in the raw Romanian wilderness.
Yeap! That’s about it! But wait, there’s more.
The reward will be stunning landscapes, beautiful people and friendships gained along the way. And to wrap it up in true Romanian style, the whole adventure ends with a two-day trip to Dracula’s Castle and Peles Castle, giving you a glimpse of Romanian history and culture and diving deep into Romanian cuisine and traditions.
Ultra Race Romania is brought to you by two ultra runner friends who raced multi-stage self-sufficient races all over the world. Taking on a multi-day ultra in a remote corner of the Earth is one of the greatest experiences someone can do. The sense of achievement you feel after crossing the finish line of each stage, the good stories to be told between your fellow competitors each night by the campfire, make such an event really unique. The journey of each competitor to the finish line might be a personal one, each one fighting his own demons, but what remains at the end of it is an experience of a lifetime and most of all, true friendships.
The format of the race is running/walking/crawling 250km in 6 stages (7 days) in a part of Romania with beautiful green landscapes, where the legends of the past are still a way of living and the blend of history, culture and the beauty of the nature make it a must-do on every ultra runner’s bucket list.
When we first thought about this race we promised ourselves that competitors would traverse a part of Romania where “legends meet” so that they have the opportunity to run in a beautifully legendary landscape and have the journey of a lifetime. Each stage is designed in such a way that instantly transports the runners through places packed with stories that can’t wait to be discovered. Seize the opportunity to visit some of Romania’s most legendary attractions: The Eagles Lake, Cașoca Waterfall, Princess Lera of Chiojdu Valley, Luana’s Country and the Gate of God, The Mud Volcanoes, and The Living Stones.
