If you’re keen on long distance solo running in the mountains, we give you an opportunity. There is an ultra marathon Chudy Wawrzyniec about to happen. Chudy Wawrzyniec means roughly Skinny Laurence. We start on 12th of August 2017 at 4:00 am from the little town – Rajcza. We’ve prepared two main courses – 50+ and 80+ kilometers, both going up and down as a roller coaster. You don’t need to choose the route before the race, you may decide at certain point high in the mountains depending on the actual mood and fatigue.

Most of the route lead through narrow, spiral paths on the border of Poland and Slovakia, crossing lots of forests and fields. There is actually no significant uphill to cover, but there are lots of silent killers, where running is the last thing you might consider. That explains the total elevation of 3400 m on the route of 80 km and 2200 m on the course of 50+ km. Most of the route is a marked trail but additionally in every uncertain point we’ll mark it with our own tape (white stripes with black inov-8 logo). Also every runner will get a map with the marked route just in case.

There will be two nutritional points on the course of 80+ km and one on the course of 50+ km. All the other equipment needed to cover the distance competitors will have to carry by themselves.

Ultramarathon Chudy Wawrzyniec is a qualifying race to The North Face Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc:

50 km route – 1 point (3 new)
80 km route – 2 points (4 new)

We’re working on it!
