The Nature Protection and Tourism Club (CPNT) organizes, between 14th to 17th of July 2016, the 8th edition of Marathon 7500 – a competition that involves running 90 kilometers on the marked trails in the beautiful Bucegi Mountains, measuring over 7500m of height gain, in a time limit of 35 hours.
For those discouraged by these numbers, we’ve prepared the Hobby section, where teams run “only”45km with 3700m height gain, but with only 14 hours to finish.
Marathon 7500 is, first of all, a mountain race, which only goes on marked tourist trails, with additional markings only where necessary.
Secondly, it is a team “sport”: female, mixed or male are the race’s categories, and choosing the right teammate may prove to be more important than physical or psychical training.
The Start / Finish line will be located near Mountain Rescue Team Headquarters. You can find here (link) details regarding the access.
The minimum age for joining the contest is 18 years.
