24h ultra - 18th Sept 2021

Start - morning

24h ultra is an unique race as it gives opportunity to push your limits without carrying lots of food, planning a drop bag etc.

You will "enjoy" 17k loop for 24h passing a base camp each time to recharge, change cloths, sleep, chill with others. That give you a comfort of going light and fast. Loop overview: 90% single track, 10% gravel, plenty of difficult terrain, lots of small hills. 

Even though 17k has about 390m elevation only (acc to Suunto Spartan Ultra) it feels like much more ! 

.gpx file you can find on tracedetrail.fr

 

5 points for 10 loops - 170k/3900m+
4 points for 8 loops - 136k/3150m+
3 points for 6 loops - 102k/2360m+

Here are some quotes from finishers:

"Man this trail is brutal"

"I'm surprised how did you find so many hills in here!"

"Beautiful forest"


17 km - 19th Sept 2021

Start  - morning

Loop overview: 90% single track, 10% gravel, plenty of difficult terrain, lots of small hills. 


50 km - 19th Sept 2021

start  - morning 

 

It is NEW trail that shares first 13km with 17km loop and then takes you into even more brutal terrain. There is plenty of hills, rivers crossings, off-trail parts but also many nice forest roads to relax. To navigate you will follow gpx. file and very limited markers. There will be few mandatory check points to find and check-in. At last you will come back to Mossa trail and enjoy last 4km back to base camp.


7km - 19th Sept 2021

Start - morning

Try classic distance of 6,7km - the same as we run on WTF Backyard Ultra. It is 20% technical trail, 50% forest road, 30% asphalt.


Oh one more!!
