Dear friends,
Have you ever tasted 'patatnik' - the genuine, Rhodopean patatnik, made by the golden hands of the elderly ladies of Zlatograd and home-baked in a wood stove? This, dear friends, is the real patatnik; it is not just a taste, it is a tradition, emotion and even nostalgia... If you have not tasted such a culinary masterpiece, you are welcome to our patatnik party. We will be expecting you hungry on 25.09 at 18.30 at the square outside the building of the Municipality of Zlatograd.🙂

Let the race become an experience not only for the runners but also for all the guests of the ultramarathon!
