The shortest races in a large number of races have an ungrateful starting position...not here! The start is in the very center of the city of Bitola and it ends in the center of Baba Planina, what a uniqueness !! After a spectacular start, the trail takes you over Tumbe Kafe to the St.Athanasius the Great Monastery on the Smolevo hill, from where you have a beautifull view of the city of Bitola. You continue to one of the most visited mountain lodges in Neolica. No worries about the heat, a good part of the trail is in deep and tall forest where you have a lot of shade. The steep part of the ascent to the top of Neolica starts from the lodge. And then the view is worth every effort...unique! You also have an unobstructed view of the finish line just 2 km below you...but be careful. At that length, you will make about 600 meters of descent... maximum concentration is necessary if you want to experience a unique welcome at the finish line!
