DHL Carpathian Marathon, the top mountain running event in Romania, reaches this year's number 10 edition. The participants will meet at the starting line on June 22, in the heart of one of the last wild regions in Europe, the Carpathian Mountains, at Keys of Gradistei - Fundata Resort, an Olympic-level Race Village.
After a 2018 SOLD OUT edition, before signing up, DHL Carpathian Marathon powered by MPG comes this year with new challenges, with unique experiences and adrenaline at maximum odds! Every year thousands of runners are expected, ambassadors and supporters, and the goal is to donate a larger sum to the National Paralympic Committee, the cause that the event sustains for the fifth consecutive year.
"Give yourself the chance of an adventure of 10! Live the experience of DHL Carpathian Marathon at the 10th edition! " is the message with which the event awaits all fans of running, whether beginners or professionals, to break down any mental barrier and conquer the mountains in one of the most spectacular running races in Romania! They will be able to explore unprecedented routes that cross natural parks and unique wildlife in Europe, some still undiscovered by runners.
"We celebrated this year's 10 memorable events, time spent in nature, motion, adrenaline and a lot of good deeds, along with a beautiful community of runners! That's what the DHL Carpathian Marathon is and it's great to see the evolution of this event over time. The participants resonate with us and, besides the passion to run, explore and conquer the mountains, they are motivated to help the social cause that we support at every edition of the DHL Carpathian Marathon. I am glad to say that we will continue the tradition and we will be back with the Paralympic National Committee, investing in our paralympic athletes, so that they can represent us well at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo, 2020. I know what I'll do on June 22, I hope you too! See you at the starting line! "said Daniel Kearvell, Managing Director of DHL Express Romania.
