 Transylvania Trail Traverse -

Mountain Run and Ultra

The wild and rugged Bucegi mountains will play host to the latest race offering from Lost Worlds and also place participants within kilometers of Bran Castle, the historic home of Dracula. The start is 5k from the Castle, then makes a  1000 meter climb and follows high paths past monasteries, waterfalls and fantastic high technical paths.

We are truly excited to offer this new and nearly entirely single track trail race, set in the mountains of central Romania, an area steeped in legend and folklore so powerful that it has still not been laid to rest even after 5 centuries. It will now be part of our Lost Worlds Trail Series.

Consider taking a night train through the mountains from Budapest to town of Brasov, a 13th century mountain town neat to where the races will start and finish in Bran. Amazing experience!

Visit yet another historic location, Sighisoara Citidel, the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler. 2014 was the 15th anniversary of its naming as a UNESCO world heritage site. The single-track trails, jagged ridges and views from high in the Transylvanian Alps are staggeringly beautiful. The race and experience in Romania will truly transport you to a different time and place, a Europe of long ago thatmust be experienced and tasted in the mountains and villages.  

Our team after returning from one of their first scouts in the Bucegi Mountains of Romania and had this to say:

"Epic high altitude paths, technical paths, high speed paths. Warm friendly people, hospitality, 2016 is a year for going east, to see new paths there that almost no western europeans have ever run. Homemade goulasch for USD 3, Ursus beer USD 2. The area is entirely unspoiled. The 12th century town of Brasov is safe and friendly with excellent restaurants. The time is now. In ten years it will be like any other european alpine area. The unique combination of incredible route and experienced race management, together with local Romanian experts, will make for an unforgetable adventure."

Join us in September. This race festival is scheduled for August 26th - 27th, 2016.
