The course, as it is usual by mountain ultramarathons, is a multi-terrain one. Significant are the large meadows. Forest paths and trails are making another part of the course. The tarmac (asphalt roads) makes about 10% of the 78 km course, the longest tarmac passage with 1,2 km is the course beginning in Kokava nad Rimavicou. There are no really technically difficult passages, but please, calculate with several steep ascents and descents. 

* The race organizer reserves the right to change the course, time limits of the checkpoints. In such case the registered participants will be informed via e-mail.
