The marathon route from Avrig has undergone several changes over the years. The current form was drawn last year after the introduction of the staged competition in the avrig MTB Triad program.

The fact that the 70-kilometer-long route with about 1,400 m difference in level is not one that would “scare” the competitors brought a greater number of participants. Thus, a number of 69 competitors, including 7 girls, finished the 70 kilometers in 2020. The winning times were 2h 48minutes for men (Lucian Logigan and Ede Molnar) and 3h 32minute for women (Manuela Mureșan)

Competitors will have 3 refueling and hydration points on the route at 22, 40 and 50 kilometers. At kilometer 38 there will also be a time limit of 3 hours. That means everyone who doesn’t pass this point by 1:30 p.m. will be directed to the route of 45 and ranked there.

As the competition categories at the marathon (70km) we have Amateur Male 19-29 years, Amateurs Male 30-39 years, Amateurs Male >40 years and Open Female >19 years.

The winners of each category will wear on the podium the green jersey offered by GEIGER, one of our traditional sponsors.
