“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” (T.S. Elliot)
The S24H International Ultra Running Race is an ultra-marathon which consists in covering the longest distance in 6, 12, 24, 48 or 72 hours of running, on a 1236 meter asphalt lap, lit during night time.
In 2016, on the first edition of S24H, the longest distances covered by Romanian ultra-runners were:
- Razvan Farkas 207,1 km in 24h (men);
- Mara Moroşan 180,9 km in 24h (women);
- Arnold Dekani-Engelman 112,7 km in 12h (men);
- Mariana Nenu 121,3 km in 12h (women).
The winner of the first edition of S24H was Levente Halama, ultra runner from Hungary, who covered 222.5 km in 24h.
Diana Amza – the Manager of S24H Ultra Running Race – also likes ultra-running herself and she has already covered ultra-marathons of 53 km, 61 km and 100 km. The idea of organizing the S24H race originated in the will to offer all runners an opportunity to surpass their current limits and to discover the lessons offered by long distance running which can also be applied into daily life: to see beyond your present limitations, to trust your body, to consolidate your mental abilities, to successfully fulfill a task despite your physical and mental fatigue, to increase your discipline and perseverance, to learn how to feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations, to achieve the certainty that you can overcome any obstacle that crosses your path.
If you decide to take part in S24H Ultra Running Race, we would like to thank you and guarantee a transforming experience that will provide you the opportunity to spend enough time with yourself in order to discover who you really are.
