Race Through Poland is a one-stage, self-supported, and long-distance bicycle race where the main objective for riders is to make their way from start to finish through the four control points located in the heart of Central and Eastern Europe mountain ranges.
The race’s sixth edition will swing around Western Carpathians lying on the southern borders of eastern Poland, and for the first time, in the race’s history, the route will reach the very south borders of Slovakia. The challenge and unknown land is about to come!
Race Through Poland No.6 will start at sunrise, in the beating heart of the Polish Carpathians, the city of Zakopane. Located on the foot of the High Tatras, this place will tune our riders with highlanders folklore, before they hit a pretty mountainous 1500km adventure.
Riders will gather in one of the most famous places in the city called Rówień Krupowa. It is a unique element of Zakopane's urban layout, an area of historical and cultural value, symbolically connecting the city with the Tatra Mountains. The name comes from the surname of the former owners of the land, a flat, 24-hectare meadow crossed by a small series of footpaths. A vast, once agricultural, flat area covered with meadows (pasture) and tree belts, is now the biggest in the Zakopane Park area, with an amazing view towards the Tatra Mountains.
5 AM start will be neutralized under the Police escort and will commence from the super famous viewpoint with large wooden lettering - Zakopane. The sharp start will happen at km 2.3, after a proper signal from the Police officer.
