Únete 2X2 Race

2X2 RACE is the only mountain running race in Romania that is completely above 2000m altitude, being extremely technical and definitely one of the hardest mountain ultra-marathons in the world.

The course has 45km length and 4200m vertical climb and takes the competitors on the two highest peaks in Romania, Moldoveanu (2544m) and Negoiu (2535m), on top of the spectacular ridge of the Fagaras Mountains.

X2 RACE is an incredibly spectacular race given it’s technical track and huge positive altitude gain (1900m D+) to length ratio, that takes place completely 2000m above sea level, in the Făgăraș Mountains, reaching the second highest peak in the Romanian Carpathian Mountains, Negoiu (2535m).

Competitors will be selected after verifying the acceptance conditions, that emphasize having at least a moderate mountain running experience, to ensure handling the physical and mental effort they will endure.

100 meters from the race start (Balea Lake heliport, across the street from Paltinu Lodge) the organizers, with the generosity of the people from Cartisoara, offer the possibility of free camping (tents only and race number required) in the area to the right of the Transfagarsan road (DN 7C) while looking at the tunnel, around the ASMS Mountain Rescue Hut (white with red hut). Toilet and shower access is not free and is available at the paid parking and also at the lodges and cabins in the area. Camping is also possible at the private camping site (between the cable cart lodge and the lodge on the lake). Free camping is also possible, on both valleys, north and south of the tunnel.

Because in August, Balea Lac is extremely crowded, parking is very difficult. It is possible wherever you find a place where traffic is not affected and also at one of the two paid parking places, on the left and right of the Transfagarasan road (DN 7C) while looking at the tunnel from the north side. To avoid problems we recommend arriving as soon as possible on Friday.
