De 100 km telt ruim 6000 hoogtemeters+. Start en finish plaats Bran ligt op 750 meter. Bij de 100 km kom je op 2 plekken op 2500 meter.
The Bucegi mountain range - rising spectacularly from the Prahova Valley in the east, and the Bran Valley in the west - is the stage for the Transylvania 100k (+/- 6,383m) & 50k (+/- 3,183m)races.
Our maps are produced by the excellent Romanian mapping specialists Muntii Nostri - their detailed and informative maps are available as downloads and in paper format.
All runners will be issued with a full-colour race map, along with descriptions of the various permanent trail markings to be followed along the route. In sections traversed at night, luminous markers will be used, along with glowsticks to define the route across open ground.
A written description of the route will also be provided, plus a gps download of each route.
WELCOME to the Transylvania 100k & 50k! Now looking forward to our second edition, these are mountain ultras which cross one of the most beautiful and mysterious regions of eastern Europe.
On May 21th, 2016, runners will again assemble on a start-line beneath Dracula's Castle in the village of Bran, ready for an adventure through the alpine-like scenery of rural Transylvania.
Twisting singletrack, ancient forest trails, mountain plateaus and windswept ridges will link together in grand, single-lap traverses of the Bucegi Range, climbing and descending many thousands of metres before finishing back at the Castle.
Entries, which are now open, are available to solo runners and teams-of-two in the 100k, solos in the 50k, with prizes in all categories, including mixed teams. All runners and teams who finish inside the 30-hour time limit (15 hours for the 50k) will be awarded a special race memento.
For supporters, there's the chance to see their runners at one of the high points of both races, via the cable-car ascent to the Bucegi Plateau from Busteni. They can also support at Pestera (by car via forest road), and then for 100k supporters, in Busteni town, at the Bolboci Lake tourist cabana, and Moieciu de Sus. Both races start and finish in the grounds of Dracula's Castle.
