Race record: New Course
The brand new Pirin Extreme is a short and technical course with 38 km and 3,300m of vertical climb introduced to replace the original Pirin Ultra course. Starting in the skiing town of Bansko Bulgaria, it’s been described as a race with a split personality.
The start and finish stretch is flat and fast but the middle section of the race is extreme and hardcore with steep climbs and narrow and exposed marble ridges in the heart of Pirin National park, part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. With 400m cliff drops on either side of the track, it requires stamina, experience and a great amount of sure-footedness.
