The idea of a run around borders of Zielona Góra city has been for years in our heads. However, the catalyst was missing …
Zielona Góra recently increased significantly its borders by joining neighboring areas. We were curious, how long would be the route around it – turned out that more than 100 km. It is therefore a great opportunity to organize in our city an ultramarathon on a 100+ km distance, following just the new borders of the city.
This will promote wonderful and already well known areas like Wzgórza Piastowskie (Piastowskie Hills), and also discover new recreational areas within the (new) city borders.
Ultramarathon “Nowe Granice” (which in Polish means both: new borders and new limits) is not directed only to the ultra runners. In the course, in addition to the individual participants running the whole distance, allowed are 2 and 4 person relays as well as duathlon for individual races and 2 person relay. We hope that this approach will allow many of you to participate in the competition and at the same time get a taste of the ultra racing.
Let everyone set for himself his own new limits.
