What is Ultra Race Romania?
Just think of running / walking / crawling 250km in 6 stages (7 days) in a part of Romania with beautiful green landscapes, where the legends of the past are still a way of living and the blend of history, culture and the beauty of the nature makes it a must do on one runner’s bucket list.

“When we first thought about this race we promised ourselves to bring the competitors in a part of Romania where “legends meet” so that they have the opportunity to run in a beautifully legendary landscape and have the journey of a lifetime. Each stage is designed in such way that instantly transports the runners in places full of stories that cannot wait to be discovered”, confessed the 2 race directors, Andrei Gligor and Daniel Nica, two ultra runners friends who raced multi-stage self-sufficient races all over the world in the past years.
On short, the competitors have to cover 250km (155 miles) with 11.000m (36.000ft) elevation gain,  in 6 stages, in a beautiful but challenging terrain carrying all they need to survive for the whole week.
The first reward will be stunning landscapes, beautiful people met and friendships gained along the way. And to wrap it up the Romanian style, the whole adventure ends with a two days trip to Dracula’s Castle and Peles Castle, having a glimpse in the Romanian history and culture and dive deep into the Romanian cuisine and traditions.
The second reward, for those seeking UTMB qualifying points, Ultra Race Romania has been ITRA certified and was given 6 qualifying points.

"*Marathon des Sables - Hard
*Grand 2 Grand Ultra  - Harder
*Ultra Race Romania - CHUCK NORRIS OF ULTRAS!
I've done marathon des Sables in 2018, a 250km stage race that is classed as the toughest footrace on earth in the Sahara desert.
The Grand to Grand Ultra in Nevada USA, at 273kms is another hard race. I DNF in 2018 and redemption in 2019. Half MDS Peru in 2019, at 120kms is no light race.
I just completed now the Ultra Race Romania, another 250km multi day stage race.
Most ultras now say they are tougher than the Marathon des Sable, but this race in Romania was a brutal struggle from beginning to end. With 36000 ft elevation gain, it pushed me to the limit way beyond I thought it was possible." - Lee Thomas  - Finisher of Ultra Race Romania 2021.
