The possibilities for parking in the vicinity of the Szentimrei Villa are limited (max. 10-15 cars can park opposite the villa gates) and the roads leading there are bad. Due to this, as well as to protect the environment, we kindly ask the participants to choose the transportation provided by the organizers or train*.
*The number of bicycles allowed on any given train are limited. The organizers do not guarantee that you will be able to get on a specific train with your bike. If you want to travel by train, please inquire at the railway companies about the transportation of bicycles.
Limited number of participants
This year, the number of participants is limited because of the capacity of certain locations. Accordingly, we allow a maximum of 300 accepted participants. If you register, but do not pay your participation costs, you may be left outside of the 300-person limit and we will have to cancel your registration. Therefore we ask you to pay your participation costs as soon as possible after registration in order to secure your participation. If the limit is reached earlier, registration will be closed before the registration deadline.
What will be provided for the participants?
The organizers provide each participant with a bib, a time card, a tour map and at request a memorial t-shirt; those who complete the tour will receive a certificate and a badge.
K53/62, K28/36 és K16/25 participants will receive energizing food (apple, banana, muesli bar, wafer bar, grape-sugar) at CP 3 and 7 (Gârbău Road, Jebucu/Zsobok), and sandwiches (bread and dripping, zacusca, jam) at CP 4 (Dumbrava/Gyerővásárhely). Water will be available at all checkpoints.
At the end of the tour, at the Szentimrei Villa, the Szentimrei Foundation will invite all participants to a bowl of warm meal (cornmeal porridge with sour cream, cheese and cracklings) (after 2.00 PM).
Out of consideration for the environment, single-use cups will not be available at the checkpoints; please bring your own bottle/cup.
If requested, the organizers can transfer the luggage of the participants (1 package per participant), free of charge, from the start location to the finish location, where they can be collected from the finish office. Luggage handed in for transfer must bear a ticket with the name and phone number of the participant. The organizers do not assume any responsibility for any valuables placed in the luggage.
Accommodation in Stana (Sztána)
If you do not wish to return to Cluj (Kolozsvár) at the end of the tour, you can sleep at the Szentimrei villa (Riszeg guest-house). Advance booking is required.

A medical practitioner and a medical assistant will accompany the tour by car.
The mountain rescue service (Salvamont) has been notified about the tours. However, the participants should be aware that on certain sections it can take some time for the help to arrive. Everyone is responsible for their own safety and, if needed, should help other participants according to their abilities. For this reason, we ask all participants to bring with them a small first-aid kit, with the following recommended content: band aid, disinfectant (hydrogen-peroxide, Rivanol solution, Betadine), Magnesium tablets, bandage material.
