Rubicon 2019: the track of the third ultramarathon relay

On February 1, 2019, in the Republic of Moldova, the final stage of the third Rubicon ultramarathon race will be held. This year, the 540.3 km (335.7 miles) track of the relay will lie through the western region of the country. The race time is 58 hours and 31 seconds. This will be the greatest stage of the annual Rubicon relay!

Ultramarathoners will run through 11 districts of western Moldova: Briceni, Edinet, Riscani, Glodeni, Falesti, Ungheni, Nisporeni, Hincesti, Leova, Cantemir and Cahul. The Rubicon track will lie through villages, so the organizers invite people to come out and support the runners. In addition, locals may register and participate in the race, in order to run through their hometown or village.

The track is divided in various distance stages: from 10 km (6.2 miles) to 19.1 km (11.8 miles). Each district has up to five stages, and each stage has from 1 to 10 difficulty levels. The Rubicon 2019 will include 43 stages.

The difficulty level depends on the district’s area and relief, but also on the day or night time of running. At the registration, sportsmen can chose the distance, according to the level of difficulty and running time they want.

The Rubicon ultramarathon race is a unique sporting event for Moldova, which contributes to the development of amateur sports and helps Moldovan districts participate in the active life of the country. Both professional athletes and amateur runners can participate in the race.
