    There are three distances - mountain cross (15 km), half-marathon (35 km) and marathon (70 km).
    Race course will be revealed on September 10.

    Below you can see how it looked last year...


    Race course map from 2018

    Printable and interactive map can be seen at map service, links below. You can download GPS track in various formats. Apps available for both Android and iPhone mobile devices.

    Two loop configurations was used in race: 

    A – small loop, 15,0 km. Interactive map here.

    B – big loop, 20,3 km. Interactive map here.

    Big loop uses same course as small loop plus there is extra distance added.
    Order of track loops by distances:

    15 km:      A
    35+ km:   A + B
    70+ km:   A + B + B + A

    Note. Map engine recalculates tracks, optimising number of track points. As a result it shows slightly less distance and climb meters as it is on real course.
