Tarnovo Ultra 2020

The Ultramarathon of Veliko Tarnovo!

The Ultramarathon of Veliko Tarnovo, in 2020, starting in the city centre of the old capital of Bulgaria! For 2020, for our fifth edition, we'll be offering four distances of Trail Running - 14, 28, 48 and 71 km, two distances MTB - 27 and 45km, and ouf course - Duathlon 45km MTB + 48km Trail! Enjoy our variable terrain, hard and challenging profile, perfectly marked route and breathtaking views! Welcome to Tarnovo Ultra 2020!


The History

We came up with the idea in late 2015 and Tarnovo Ultra was already present in 2016 - with distances of 43km Trail Running and 43km MTB. In the following years we developed a lot.

We made starts and finals in the medieval fortresses of the city - Tsarevets and Trapezitsa and we added longer as well as shorter distances, aiming to make the competition more interesting and challenging for the competitors, more exicting and picturesque for the viewers. Now, for our 5th anniversary, we decided to make it into a two-day sports festival in Marno Pole park - in the ideal centre of the city.

The Competitors

We started with about a hundred competitors in Tarnovo Ultra 2016, which started sunny, but ended in a torrent with its route including 6 Orthodox monasteries. We then had 300 racers, who endured dehydratation at the scorching Tarnovo Ultra 2017 and 400 at the even hotter Tarnovo Ultra 2018. Then came Tarnovo Ultra 2019, marked by heavy rain, puddles and rivers of mud with more than 450 competitors. Through all these years we've always tried to fulfil the expectations of everybody and to meet every complaint with a smile and transform it into a attempt to become better.

 The cause of Tarnovo Ultra 2020

The daughter of our long-serving member - Ivo Dontchev - Monica is suffering form serious illness and we decided to help his family in the hard times. Our club decided to donate 20% of all registration fees from Tarnovo Ultra 2020, as well as 50% of the registration fees from Corporate Relay Tarnovo Ultra 2020 to our teammate. We'll be very happy, if anyone else wants to join our cause! More info about the cause of TU 2020 you can learn <<here>>.

Who we are?

Brown Team Sports Club is a member of the Bulgarian Orienteering Federation and since its establishtment it has always been in top 3 of the club classification, performing equally well to practice our beautiful forest sport. That's why all income from Tarnovo Ultra goes directly to the development of our child team and production of new training maps for sports orienteering. We are one big family not only in the organisation of Tarnovo Ulta, but also when attending orienteering competitions almost every weekend. Because of our experience, acquired from one of the most competitive sport environments in Bulgaria - this of orienteering - which has given our country European and World Champions, you can be sure that all race and organisation aspects of Tarnovo Ultra 2020 will be at the highest level possible.


We are looking forward to meeting you on 04th and 05th July in the centre of Veliko Tarnovo!
