 The Organization for Protecting Nature and Turism  (CPNT) is organizing in period 12-15 July 2018 the 10th edition of Marathon 7500!

Marathon 7500 has become a story of the success of thousands of mountain people and runner for which the limits have been left behind. After 10 years, the moment for a change has come. In the 10th Edition we prepared 4 tracks , each track with its on story

The competition track is market on the maps with a blue line and the black line marks the recommended access road to the Start/Finish for those come with their own car  from Sinaia – Saua Dichiu – Padina – Pestera. With the red dots are marked the verification points. The competition track has to be performed in the ascending order of the red points.

Each race contains also the GPX format of the track.

CPNT proposes this short track to the people who want to have an idea of what Marathon 7500 is, a hard competition considering the ascent in a not so long length together with a  teammate. This race has the same spirit as 7500 only the distance is shorter 22 km and it will lead you to parts of the race where other competitors from the longer tracks will fight with tiredness and strive to cross the finish line.

The re-branding has happened. If until now this track has been called Hobby, now it received a new name. We do not like to call it the hardest marathon in the country but rather its little brother , a race recommended for accommodation for Marathon 7500, itself this track is a difficult but also beautiful one

Lenght: 45 km

The beautiful story has started in 2009 when a small group of mountain lovers decided that Romania needs a serious challenge. If we would have known back then that 90 km does not mean a Marathon probably the competition would have had a different name in combination with 7500 (the high gain). The 10th Edition will be probably be the last edition with this race (7500) but do not worry the Competition name will remain the same within the logo and also in our hearts.

Few of you know that this was the initial track chosen for Marathon 7500 ten year ago but, because the limits were different we had to give up one of the most beautiful part of the track : Malaiesti Valey and shorten it. Now, together with the impressive progress in the trail running the time has come to dear to invite you for 4 times to Omu Hut. We consider that after 9 years we are all prepared for this.
