In August 2020, the TWELFTH edition of the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon will take place in the Caucasus of Georgia which marks the intersection of Europe and Asia. The host town is Tbilisi, the charming and colourful capital.
The course is located in the Javakheti Region of the southwestern part of Georgia, in the Southern Caucasus Mountain Range. The course takes you through old forests, dormant volcanic valleys, breath-taking mountain passes, unique villages and traditional monasteries. At times you may have the opportunity to sleep in traditional Georgian village homes.
The Long March will take you through abandoned former Russian villages, as you make your way up Pa’Tara Abuli, towards the Abuli Fortress which is over 3000 years old. This mysterious fortress has only recently been discovered and is part of an archaeological expedition to understand more about the history and beginnings.
