We have prepared a totally new track for K3 ULTRA's shortest distance - GBR 23K.
It will suit those ho have just begun to discover the charm of mountain running or for the experienced ones who , after the hard summer season have decided to relax in the beautiful Middle Rhodope Mountains.
The runners in this distance start westwards from the centre of Zlatograd, pass through the emblematic area Bucheto and head directly for the Bulgarian-Greek borderline, which they reach as soon as their fourth kilometre from the start.
Running along the Golden Border!
Along the borderline they reach the monument of Momchil - the Rhodopean tzar, pass by the border checkpoint and arrive at the chapel 'St. St. Konstantin and Elena', where will be set up an aid station abundant in Rhodopean specialties.
From the chapel the runners continue along the border on scenic paths and meadows above the beautiful dam Zlatograd. Then, they cross the Varbitsa river and will be able to refresh treat themselves at the Mostcheto aid station before their ascension to the historical area Kosora. From there onwards, together with the runners in the middle distance GBR 53K, they descend to the chapel 'St. Ekaterina'. From there to the finishing line there will be only 3 km left, which are common to all three distances for the effect of mass finishing of a larger number of runners.
