Concept

I could say that it is a trail-running competition, but it is not just that, it is the race of Romania, it is what we have to give and offer to both Romanians and others.

Everything related to this competition is specially chosen and it is a dream, but it is not our dream, of the organizers, it is our dream, of the Romanians.

Our motivation!

We make this project out of love for these wonderful children who need healthy landmarks, and this is what we can all offer through such a project.

The St. Leontie children’s settlement in Rădăuți is home to 114 less fortunate children, and we can help them in many ways. We can donate, we can contribute to the new house or we can be their role models in life.

The Legend

The legend was told many years ago and belongs to these blessed lands on which we live.

The legend speaks of simple people who understood that the power of example is the best way to educate a child, so what they did was show children how to live and how to trust themselves.

We still find the legend in the Transylvanian villages through the simplicity of the life lived here.
