DUE TO CORONAVIRUS CRISIS THE RACE TOOK PLACE AS HRIŇOVSKÁ STOVKA VIRTUAL IN 2020.
Hriňovská stovka is a challenging mountain ultramarathon and long distance march in Veporské and Stolické vrchy mountains in Slovakia. The first edition took place in 2019 with 90 participants. In 2020 it will be the weekend of 20.-21. June, when the 2nd edition of Hriňovská stovka with a partially changed course will welcome the participants.
Due to the coronavirus crisis we have to wait for the next edition of Hriňovská stovka until 2021. In 2020 Hriňovská stovka Virtual took place - a virtual challenge with interesting routes completed individually. The photoalbum can be found HERE.
The race is being organized by o.z. SLOVAK ULTRA TRAIL in cooperation with runners and tourist clubs from Lučenec, Banská Bystrica, Zvolen, Utekáč and Kokava nad Rimavicou.
Hriňovská stovka, of course in modern shape, continues the tradition of the long distance marches in this region of Slovakia. In the past it was Utekáčska horská stovka, which existed between the years 1977 and 1996, currently it is especially Podkrivánska šesťdesiatka. The new event - Hriňovská stovka - would like to show the beauty of the mountains and nature in this part of Slovakia with a more challenging course with 114 km distance and 4800 m total elevation gain. Between the statue of the fujara player at Podpolianske námestie square in Hriňová (fujara is a traditional and unique music instrument coming from this region) and the finish in the same town there is a long route trough the scenic landscape with panoramatic views, scattered small villages and natural attractions. Because of the demanding course character it is strongly recommended to have at least one 100 km race completed before attending this event.
Hriňovská stovka 2020 is a part of the 6th edition of the Slovak Ultratrail League. The course has been certified by ITRA (5 points) and is included in the list of qualifying races for UTMB.
