Before the runners is stage four with 84 kilometers from Slavonski Brod to Osijek. The runners say that this is the hardest part of the race..

Addendum from October 18th 2013:

We found out that Duško Štrbac dropped out of the race half way through the stage. So five runners remain in the competition. Nonetheless Duško will start tomorrow and run the hardest stage of the event. That is the spirit. Good luck to you, Duško.

  1. Hmm, are Ultrarunners comparable to Ironman ? It really looks like an endurance sport to me.

    • Ultrarunning Slovenia says:

      Comparisons are always a problem. You have to consider on distance, profile, tempo, weather conditions, … Even Ironman events between themselves are sometimes hard to compare.

      OK, to answer your question. Of course they are :) Iroman events last from 8 hours for pros to 16+ hours for ordinary guys like you and me. With ultramarathons it depends a lot on course length and profile. I would say that all ultramarathon events where an average times is around or more that 12 hours easily compare to Ironman.
