Races

Races will lead through the deep valleys and remote ridges of Rychleby mountains. The second longest and the longest races will lead you also to a highest mountain of the nearby "Gór Bialských", which are the Polish part of the Rychleby mountains. Every thrilled runner will surely enjoy the movement on the perfect many kilometres long trails on the ridge, that is exactly on the border of the Czech Republic and Poland. We chose the trails thoroughly and therefore they will lead to the most amazing places that you can find here, like deserted rocks, deep old woods, but also to beautiful mountain meadows and abandoned villages of a former Sudetenland. We want the race to fullfill dreams of everyone who loves trailrunning and nature. It will be hard but also entertaining. No asphalt roads unless the very beginning and the very end. The maps and the lenghts of the races might change a bit.
