Matra 115After many recommendations I have decided to register for Mátra 115 – my first Ultramarathon race in Hungary.  The race is organzied in mountaim range Mátra including highest peak of Hungary –  Kékestető (1014 m). Hungary seems to be quite plain country and Mátra is one of few places in the country with mountain landscape.

Total distance of the race is 118 kilometers, total ascent 6374m+ although according to another measurement the distance is 124.04 km.

The special custom of the race is that registration fee is a tray of home made cake, cookies or biscuits (in case you can’t bake your own a shopped cake will do).
