The Transylvanian Bear Races are an 80km trail ultra-marathon and 42km trail marathon taking place on 30th May in Transylvania, Romania.
The races are fully supported and will take you through one of the most spectacular places in Romania. Runners follow a pre-marked course through ancient Saxon villages, virgin forest, fortified churches, a ruined castle, open pasture land, meadows and rural village pathways. This culminates in the infamous ascent of the Sighisoara citadel, a UNESCO world heritage site and the birth place of Vlad Dracul. This is a racing first as no other race has even featured the city!
WARNING: the difficult of this route should not be underestimated. Nor should the vibrancy of the local wildlife, which includes wolves and bears.
Date: 30th May 2015
