Parking for the competitors and their accompaniment is for free near the areal of the race.


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.



We will soon inform about the day of opening the registrations - follow this page or our Facebook.

Each participant will get the map at the presentation point. There is also detailed describtion of the routes on the other side of the map but unfortunately not in English.

Mandatory equipment:
  • 76 km and 46 km: ID card or passport, headlight, mobile phone, thermo aluminium foil
  • 26 km: ID card or passport, mobile phone

Each of the routes will lead on the border with Poland, 46 km and 76 km courses lead also behind the border in Poland. Therefore you need to have you ID or passport. At the end of October it gets dark aroud 5 pm, so for the middle and long route there is necessary to have also a headlight. Races will lead through very remote places, so you should have fully charged phone with active roaming. Be aware there are plenty of spots where it's impossible to find any reception, you will have to be responsible for yourself. From the experience we demand racers on the 46 km and 76 km to be equiped also with thermo aluminium foil, as the conditions on the main ridge can be very harsh compare to the valleys. Don't underestimate our little mountains. :)

By registration to the race you agree you run the race on your own safety risk. In case of problems you should contact the organizer. The phone numbers are printed on the map.
