Persenk Ultra Half is an excellent and easy way to get familiar with mountain running for those who are now discovering the sport.
We have tried to select a route that is close to the maximum length of the standard half-marathon – 21 100 m – but unfortunately this is not always possible. Similarities with the familiar road races however end here! The route of Persenk Ultra Half has a total elevation gain of 1 350 meters, almost exclusively on mountain paths and trails and allows participants who still do not feel confident enough in their strength and abilities to experience the magic of the Persenk Ultra experience and the beauty of the Rhodopes.
The start is at 10:00 on 09/14/2013. The route should be taken within 5 hours. Participants will have four refreshment and checkpoints where will be available water, isotonic drinks and fruits.

Persenk Ultra 2013
April 102013

Persenk Ultra is a mountain foot race with a high degree of difficulty, with a great elevation gain (about 5200 m), variety of weather conditions (night and day) and long distance (over 120 km), which challenges participants’ endurance and requires excellent physical and mental preparation, proper equipment and strong-willed spirit.

The start of the race will be given on the 14th of September, 2013 at 00:00 in the town of Asenovgrad. Each participant will have 30 hours available to complete this difficult but beautiful route. Thanks to our volunteers the athletes will have 10 refreshment points located at approximately equal intervals. There they can have a snack or meal eat and replenish water reserve  so they will not have to think about anything but moving on track.

Day and night, rain or shine, cold or heat – this challenge awaits anyone who dared to join. Competitors will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the beautiful Central Rhodopes. The route has been specially chosen so as to pass along the sites related to the history of the Republic of Bulgaria as Assenova fortress, the Old Roman road and authentic Bulgarian villages where intact Bulgarian lifestyle and culture are still present. Route also passes by the rock formation Wonderful Bridges and last but not least – the majestic Mount Persenk.

You are about to experience the magic and spirit of the Rhodopes.
