Race

4 ELEMENTS // July 6, 2019 // Rtanj – Bovan Lake

After the race was returned to its old site in 2018 the time has now come for the sixth edition of the most attractive challenge in nature.

Description

This race represents the most difficult sports relay battle in the history of outdoor sports. Each team consists of five different athlete-individuals. A runner, pilot, swimmer, kayaker and a mountain biker – each competing in their own element (water, air, earth) and each being the element of fire. Why fire? Very simple – the effort is so great that it cannot be described by words! Every part of the body is burning.
Our photo and video gallery describes it best.
In 2019 powerful Rtanj is once again welcoming the best prepared athletes. Outdoor race in untouched nature, with no easy challenges, technically difficult terrain and unmatched view from the Siljak peak. More than 90km of different paths, climbs, lots of sweat, tension, calculations, emotions – this is a battle with nature and oneself. Divided into 5 completely different sports, 5 challenges – it is meant only for the bravest, those who are technically and mentally 100% prepared.
