ANNUAL DUNAV ULTRA CHALLENGE

Every year we organize an international promotional event with the participation of cyclists from Bulgaria, Romania, and more countries.
The 700 km of transition takes the form of a personal challenge with a common cause – popularization of over 110 sparsely populated villages and towns, from where the Dunav Ultra route passes.
The registration categories are in different formations: Solo, Team 2, Team 4.
Each participant or team chooses for how many days to cover the distance and organizes by himself all the necessary logistics: accommodation, food, technical or other support.
All cyclists who have certified the passage through pre-announced Checkpoints and reached the endpoint of the Dunav Ultra route receive a CERTIFICATE.
