Information for runners from abroad

Dear runners!

We cordially invite you to participate in the Vyšchrad Ultramaraton „PRZEMYSL FORTRESS”. This is a unique run with history in the background. Przemysl Town is surrounded by World War I fortifications. The course will run through the forts, bunkers and fortified roads of the third largest fortress in Europe (after Antwerp and Verdun). We have two distances: the ultra-light 55 km „CESARSKI” and 21 km „FORTECZNY” mountain range. The start of the race will take place in the center of Przemysl Town, on the unique sloping square. We provide exceptional medals and unforgettable experiences.

„Przemysl fortress was a series of fortifications constructed at Przemysl by the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the mid 19th century until the First World War. It was constructed in sections, depending on the diplomatic relations between Austria and the Russian Empire, and saw extensive combat during World War I. Originally captured by the Russian Army, it was recaptured by the German Army in mid 1915. Afterwards the ruined fortifications lost their military significance”. (wikipedia, more on:
