Every country has its own cities that are something special, unique. We were born under a lucky star that we have Bitola. The southernmost city in Macedonia is located only 17 km from the Greek border. On one side stretches the endless plain of Pelagonija and on the other the Baba mountain range, from whose peaks you have a fantastic view of Prespa Lake. The oldest Macedonian National Park-Pelister, the soul of Bitola, is also located on Baba Mountain! And its tracks will take you on an endlessly spectacularly difficult adventure…we definitely have the MOST DEMANDING RACE in Macedonia!
Bitola is a City proud of its past, culture, art, music, song. But Bitola also has the most spectacular setlists in this part of the Balkans – Sirok Sokak – Widde Alee, the macedonian Rambla! Whoever does not walk here has not been to Macedonia. We offer you even more… you can be unique and run between the city’s cafes endless lined up on two sides. Tour de France has its Alpe d‘ Huez, Trail running has Zegama and PUTM has Siroki Sokak! Race starts are located at the beginning of the most beautiful Promenade on Balkan.

You run around 3 km along an ideally straight line, between streetcafes and bars, accompanied by hundreds of delighted walkers, and enter the unexpected adventure of Baba Mountain. There is no other way to do this, this cannot be copied – this is truly unique. And once you step into that world, forget about your loved ones and your problems…Baba mountain requires extreme psychophysical fitness and you have to be the master of your own feelings. The beginning and the end of the races are our responsibility, we will prepare a Emotions… for the other 99% of the course, we can only guarantee you one thing – a fight with all the opportunities and difficulties of a REAL and WILD Mountain! And that’s why we repeat – don’t underestimate Pelister! But if you run here to the end, nothing can surprise you anymore and anyway.

It’s up to you to choose how many emotions you want to take with you, and that’s why we offer from many to extremely many! Whichever one you choose, the combination of city and mountain experience is maximum.
