New for this trip we choose to stay in traditional guesthouses, at the foot of the impressive mountains. Tasty fresh food from the villagers gardens and farms will give us strength for 3 days of exquisite mountain running.

Rural Romania will transcend us into a dream realm, hidden from most people for over 100 years. Trails of King’s Stone and Bucegi mountains will delight us with wilderness and spectacular landscapes.

This fall we have prepared slightly longer trails for you to enjoy and take as a perfect training for Kullamannen race.

The trip is for everyone who can move 5-8 hours a day in beautiful mountains. We divide runners into different level groups and you can change groups during the trip if wanted. The speed is adapted to the group and the experience is based primarily on feelings and community.
