The Ultra Grania Tatr Run is one of the most difficult, most anticipated and most breathtaking races in Poland. This 71km mountain race takes runners on a journey through the Tatra National Park, from Siwa Polana at the mouth of the Chochołowska Valley to the finish line in Kuźnice. The route offers a mix of technical difficulty and stunning natural beauty, with most of the route over 2,000 metres above sea level.
One of the characteristic features of the Grania Tatr route is a significant difference in altitude, with a total difference in altitude of +/- 5000 metres. This makes the race a test of both physical and mental endurance, as the runners not only have to cover long distances, but also overcome steep ascents and descents. The difficult terrain also requires runners to pay close attention to how they place their feet on narrow trails. Add to this the need to maintain a fast pace on rocky terrain and the Grania Tatr becomes a real test of running skills.
In addition to the technical aspects, the race offers runners breathtaking views of the Tatra Mountains. The course winds through lush forests, open meadows and rocky peaks, giving runners the opportunity to explore the full beauty of the Tatra National Park. The race is designed for experienced mountain runners who want to take on the biggest challenges. In order to have a chance to take part in the race, you have to meet the high requirements set by the organisers. If we are lucky in the draw, we will be able to take part in a picturesque and unique challenge.
The Ultra Grania Tatr race is a truly unique running experience. The combination of technical difficulty and natural beauty makes this a dream race for any mountain runner looking for a challenge. The race gives runners the opportunity to test their skills while admiring the breathtaking views of the Tatra National Park. If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable running experience, the Ultra Grania Tatr race is an excellent choice.
