Organizing the UB race takes up 365 days of our lives each year, minus one week recovery time … During this period we have to skilfully manage multiple tasks and cope with many unexpected situations. Still, we begin every year anew, committing ourselves 100% to the work, constantly raising our standards while preserving both the traditions and the spirit of the event.
We trust that the XIII. NN Ultrabalaton race on 11 May 2019 will again become a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of you.
Below we have collected all the features that will remain unchanged in 2019 and also those that we have modified.
