Enjoy our variable terrain, hard and challenging profile, perfectly marked route and breathtaking views! Welcome to Tarnovo Ultra 2021!


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 6th year, we are making it again a two-day sports festival in Marno Pole park - in the perfect 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. In the pandemic 2020, we moved to the summer, because of sports event ban in the summer and therefore we became one of the biggest events of the year with more than 600 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.

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 2021 will be at the highest level possible.


We are looking forward to meeting you on 10th and 11th of April in the centre of Veliko Tarnovo!
