Various legends are circulating about the MTB Singletrack Marathon route ...
Somewhere in the southern regions, among beginners, it is said that enduro tracks are run here and some sections need to be walked (yes, supposedly down the hill!). Those well-founded in singletrack things make fun of them and they say they ride here with the comfort of their eyes closed.
The truth will be somewhere in the middle. In any case, there is a claim among the marathon community that it is the most beautiful and enjoyable marathon route, not only in Slovakia. [Nbsp]
Be that as it may, study the routes carefully before you start. Mainly refreshment places, rescue places and time limits on the track.
It's not important to get off to a good start but healthy and laughing to reach the finish line and come back next time again!
WARNING ! Some sections of the route lead along a protected area of the 3rd category and on sidewalks where, according to the Forest Act, cyclists are not allowed to move. The exception is valid only during the official training on the track and on the day of the race from 10:00 to 16:00! We ask you to respect these facts and to observe the general rules on protection and movement in nature. [Nbsp]
We thank you!
