24h ultra - 19th Sept 2020

DUE TO CORONA SPECTATORS/SUPPORTERS NOT ALLOWED THIS YEAR

7:45 - race brief

Start - 8:00

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 is 80% single track, 10% gravel road with plenty of difficult terrain and lots of small hills. 

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

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"
