Overall / General information


Start Chudego


If you’re keen on long distance solo running in the mountains, there is an event prepared just for people like you! An ultra marathon Chudy Wawrzyniec, which in Polish means roughly “Skinny Laurence”, will take place on August 10th, 2019. Two main courses – 50+ and 80+ kilometers, both with high elevations. The fun part is that you don’t have to choose the distance before the race, you may decide at a certain point during the race, depending on your mood and physical condition.

Most of the route leads 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 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.

If you are not ready yet or not interested in routes over 50km or 80 km at all, we thought about you too! Mała Rycerzowa is a shorter companion of Chudy Wawrzyniec: 20,05 km, 930m elevations and one nutitional point. Who knows, maybe next year you will come for longer distances?

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

  • 80 km route – 4 points
  • 50 km route – 3 points
  • 20 km route – 1 point

Safety:

Most of the route leads through mountainous landscape where providing help is very difficult. Every competitor is obliged to deliver help to the other competitor, if needed. Leaving the victim of an accident without help will be punished with disqualification.

Quitting the race:

If any competitor decides to quit the race, he/she is obliged to inform the Organizer (Emergency number is printed on a map). Competitors who fails to meet this rule will be charged with the costs of the find and rescue operation.

Accommodation:

The Organizer provides accommodation in school in Rajcza. There is an additional fee for it (10 zł) and places are limited to 100 people. Own sleeping bag and mattress is required.
