Ever since the works for marking the Via Transilvanica road started, I had a single desire, to go through it completely. But covering such a long distance without a support team is impossible.
So, after hitting this barrier, we decided to organize a way to offer support to all those who want to ride such an Ultramarathon and so was born the first edition of the Transylvania Legends race.
We carry out this project with love for wonderful children, who need healthy landmarks from the St. Leontie Rădăuți Settlement.
The St. Leontie children’s settlement in Rădăuți is home to 114 children, who come from disadvantaged families, but who now enjoy the exemplary care of the wonderful people in the settlement. We can help them in many ways.
We can donate, we can contribute to their new home or we can be role models in their lives and offer them emotional support.
Many legends have crossed our country long and wide. Some have disappeared, some we still hear about, but the earth we tread and run knows them all, because he himself is the legend.
And, as a true story, not only what you read, but it is heard from the mouth of the one who knows it, we invite you to discover it yourself in the Transylvanian villages and in the simplicity of life lived here.
The legend lies in the port, in the words, in the culinary delicacies and especially in the humanity of the locals.
The man in the first place!
Running ourselves, in our turn in the races, we want to offer the participants the experience we would like to receive! So, we put the running experience first, to the detriment of the competition.
Food and hydration!
We will not lie to you, we kind of like to eat, especially in long races, that’s why we offer food points with everything, to satisfy all your cravings, like at home, even during the race!
We carry out this race in a cheerful, characteristic Romanian spirit, in which we rediscover together the humanity from the village, which makes us make connections for life, beyond occupations, status and so on. In the course are all runners, but especially people!
The organization of this race was a spontaneous initiative that was born from the love for Romania and the Via Transilvanica project. With the same persistence that we showed in the first edition, we will try to take the next ones to another level.
We give everything!
We know that in order to run an Ultramarathon you need a touch of madness and you have to get fully involved. With the same attitude and involvement with which we would run an Ultramarathon, we also organize Transylvania Legends.
Whatever you do in life, it seems to have a nicer taste when you want to do well. So, through Transylvania Legends we run, we donate, but we also offer an example to the children from the Saint Leontie Settlement in Rădăuți.
