Lazová stovka is the first of the new 100-kilometer long distance marches, which appeared in Slovakia after year 2008. The idea to organize this event was brought in 2007 by Slavomír Glesk and in the next year the 1st edition of Lazová stovka took place. Since then Lazová stovka is a inseparable part of the season in Slovakia. It takes place in April in the White Carpathians and Small Carpathians with start and finish in Vrbové.
During the 11 editions of Lazová stovka the attendance increased up to 350. It is a popular event, which is well known due to its great and friendly atmosphere. Because of the spring date the participants of Lazová stovka (here "Lazovníci") couôd experience the course in a variety of weather conditions.
The course of Lazová stovka follows mostly the marked tourist or local paths to the boarder with Czech republic and after a passage in Czech republic it ascends to Veľká Javorina (970 m a.s.l.) and returns to Slovakia, where through the village Lubina and the Čachtické Karpaty hills it reaches the finish in Vrbové. The map (link) for the actual course for 2019 year shows, that the participants of the 12th edition of "Lazovka" can look forward for a 114 km clourse in the beautiful surrounding of Veľká Javorina.
There is a possibility to stay overnight in the gymnasium of the Elementary school in Vrbové. Dropbag service (to the checkpoint Vrbové close to the 50th kilometer) is available too. On top of the live checkpoints/aid stations participants need to calculate with several "label" checkpoints (unstaffed).
Lazová stovka 2019 is a part of the 5th edition of Slovenská Ultratrailová Liga (Slovak Ultratrail League) and part of 10th edition of Česko-Slovenská Tisícovky (CS-1000). Lazová stovka is also a part of Česko-Slovenský pohár v ultratrailu na 100 km (CSUT).
