The Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage ultra-endurance on & off-road cycling competition. It will start and finish in Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland National Park. The route will follow the ancient borderlands of Bohemia via the remnants of centuries-old road networks that still exist to this day. The riders will compete on their approximately 1300km long journey circumnavigating Bohemia, crossing back-and-forth along national borders, riding through Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Czech Republic. With over 22,000m of climbing, it will be a test of each rider’s abilities and a true adventure – a race able to rival ultra-endurance events on faraway continents, yet here, in the middle of Europe. The Race’s start and finish will take place at the very same place we use for the Bohemian Border Bash Camp.
All racers will be required to carry a satellite tracker to log their race track and aid in locating any competitor in need of emergency assistance. It will be a self-supported race. Racers will not be able to ask for or accept any help along the way. But even though much of the course will wind through less developed areas, the nature of locating The Race in the heart of Europe means there will be numerous points for public resupply close to and along the route.
