Gorce Ultra-Trail 2019 news

In next year’s Gorce Ultra-Trail there will be several new elements.

1. There are five distances to choose from, but instead of vericala to Studzionki, we introduce a new distance of 10 km and about 350 m of possitive altitude, on the slopes of Gorc. The route is easy, with definitely more downhills than ascents, and very scenic; perfect for complete novices in the mountains. Start in the morning on Saturday, August the 3th.

2. There will be the same 48 and 84 km routes, but both of these runs will be completely separated, with separate entries and a different start time. Generally, participants of a shorter distance will be able to sleep longer 🙂

3. The fight for the Gorc Trophy will get blushes, because next to the extraordinary beauty of the cup, the winner, who overcomes the distance of 102 km in less than 10 hours, will receive an additional prize of 1000 euros.

We would like to remind you the date of the Gorce Ultra-Trail:  August 3-4th, 2019, main base: Ochotnica Dolna.

And we will start registration for the first two distances of Gorce Ultra-Trail 2019 in the coming week! Be vigilant 🙂
We invite you to Gorce 🙂

Robbie Britton – Gorce Ultra-Trail 2018 winner

This inconspicuous and delectable boy –  Robbie Britton – won the Gorce Ultra-Trail 2018. The distance of 102 km ran in 10 hours 24 minutes and 27 seconds, that is, he did not have much to get the Gorce Cup . In Poland, he is probably completely unknown, so it is worth writing a few words about him.
Robbie has 800 ITRA points; as this is the level of eg Bartosz Gorczyca or Artur Jabłoński his result is not accidental. He competed in many races around the world, winning top places to name only the most famous ones: OCC (16), CCC (11), Cappadocia Ultra Trail (3), La Sportiva Lavaredo Ultra Trail (3) and Marathon du Mont-Blanc (3).
However, his history is much more unusual. Well, Robbie also competed in 24-hour runs (!), Those asphalt on the loop. In the World Championship in 2015 he took third place with the result of 261 km (!!) Then he also met Patrycja Bereznowska and other Polish asphalt ultras, whose names he threw as from the sleeve, although each time it took us some time to decipher who is he talking about (Polish is not especially easy language ). Not only that, he is also familiar with some more crazy adventures  Last year, for example, with two friends he ran a 580-kilometer trail through the mountains of Bulgaria  An interesting movie from this event can be found here

Robbie runs his own website, where you can find more interesting information
Our winner lives in Chamonix on a daily basis so he has a nice place to train and announces that next year he will come to the GUT again – the Gorc Cup is still undone 
Robbie – congratulations, great result, we wait for you next year

Ochotnica Challenge 20 km without stones

After recent heavy rains and floods routes of Gorce Ultra-Trail can’t stop surprising us. There isn’t much changes on ridges and peaks – water didn’t have time to cumulate there. So running there is still nice. But it gets worse further down the valley. Some tracks were washed out of sand – all that is left are stones, small stones and… stones  Sometimes you can find labyrinths of branches that were brought there by streams of rain water – so you should run slower than usually. We advise caution.
To make you life better we decided to slightly change the route of Ochotnica Challenge 20 km – which is specially for the beginners. Around 16th km of the route you will not run to Szlagówka vilage, deep down the valley, but you will run along the ridge and after 1 km back onto the previous track. The dystans will stay almost the same and elevation will be slightly smaller but the route will be faster and nicer. New route will be precisely marked and here you have a link to our website with the new route:
