 Transylvania Trail Traverse -

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 where the races will start and finish. Amazing experience!

Visit yet another historic location, Sighisoara Citidel, the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler. 2014 will be 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.  

With many races already in Europe we have decided to announce one new location each year as our "Discovery Race" and for 2014 it will be Romania. We will announce the next Discovery Race location for 2015 by end of Summer 2014.

Our team recently returned from a summer scout from Romania and had this to say:

"Epic high altitude paths, technical paths, high speed paths. Warm friendly people, hospitality, 2014 is the year for go 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."

We work with people who are passionate about travel  and providing authentic, immersive experiences that are well researched, well executed  and difficult to replicate.

Our team has been looking after runners at the destination races we dream up for over 10 years. We believe that this approach of keeping our groups small in size - 10-12 guests each outing  - will allow us to prepare and manage a truly remarkable and singularly rewarding experience for each group. As well as having interesting program of daily excursions we will have optional running tours of 5-10k  scheduled to keep you legs moving and ready to race. We will also have plenty of free time to allow you to strike out and explore the area on your own.

We invite you to join us for a one of a kind trip with your friends or on your own. You'll find good company here.
