Metsovo Race - Ursa Trail

Welcome to the races Ursa Trail and The Tracks of the Bear.

Our aim was to design the path in order to bring the athletes through the habitat of the bear and also to raise the awareness of environmental protection and the prevention of extinction of the brown bear. The route passes from old paths that have been cleaned time and again with lots of volunteer work and can now be used not only by athletes on the day of the races but also by everyone for walking or hiking.

The total length of the races «Ursa Trail» and «The Tracks of the Bear» is 40km with 2700m total positive climb and 20km with 1050m total positive climb, respectively.

The route goes through some of the historical pathways and monuments of exceptional aesthetic and natural value in the region. The first part of Ultra Trail forms a number eight and lies east of Arachthos river in the region of Anilio while the second part, which is also the path of the small race, extends west of Arachthos in the area of Metsovo.
