2X2 RACE is the only race in Romania that has the complete track at an altitude above 2000 meters, being extremely technical and surely one of the most difficult mountain ultra-marathons in the world.

The course has 45km length and 4200m vertical climb and takes the competitors on the two highest peaks in Romania, Moldoveanu (2544m) and Negoiu (2535m), on top of the spectacular ridge of the Fagaras Mountains.

Competitors will be selected after verifying the minimal acceptance conditions, that emphasize having at least a moderate mountain running experience, to ensure handling the huge physical and mental effort they will endure.
