Štrbské Pleso (Slovakia), 16-18 June 2017
Within just six years, the Tatry Running Tour in Slovakia has become so popular that registration for the TRT 2017 had to be closed early. All races are sold out. Runners from ten countries have registered for the event.
Staged in Štrbské Pleso, Slovakia's highest resort, situated at 1,325 metres above sea level, the TRT consists of three races through the amazingly beautiful scenery of the High Tatras mountain range.
Entrants can choose between two versions — Classic and Extreme:
|1||16 June 2017 (Friday)||4.5km Night Run|
|2||17 June 2017 (Saturday)||12km Cross Run||34km Sky&Clouds Run|
|3||18 June 2017 (Sunday)||8km Interski Run|
In case you don't want to run three races in three days you can decide to take part in Stage 1 or Stage 2 only, i.e. the Night Run, the Cross Run or the Sky&Clouds Run. The Interski Run on Sunday is reserved for participants in all three stages.
Stage 1 is a 4.5km-long summer night run around the glacial Štrbské pleso lake (pictured below).
Stage 2 and Stage 3, however, are very challenging trail races which take the runners up and down the slopes of the Tatras.
The Sky & Clouds Run features about 2,400m of ascent and 2,400m of descent. The highest point on the course is at an elevation of 2,030m.
As the event takes place within the boundaries of the Tatra National Park, entries are limited to 200 runners in the TRT Classic and 100 runners in the Sky&Clouds Run and in the TRT Extreme.
