682 km duathlon on the route Dunav Ultra (40 km running and 642 km cycling) within 48 hrs.
On August 20, 2016, four amateur athletes: Boris Begamov, Stanislav Evgeniev, Ilian Lazarov, and Filip Lhamsuren started an extreme cycle&run challenge. Their goal was to overcome the 682 km then Dunav Ultra Cycling Route, running 40 km and covering the remaining 642 km by cycling below 48 hours.
The main goal of the challenge was at least one of the four to cover the distance successfully in the limited 48-hour time window. In addition, the event’s cause was to popularize the small villages along the Danube River in Bulgaria and the Dunav Ultra Cycling Route.
