The international ultramarathon “Tryavna Ultra” 2022, held for the seventh year in a row in the heart of Stara Planina, gathered over 900 participants from nearly 30 countries. The event is organized by the “I Run” Sports Club, which prepares the course for the marathoners and an accompanying program.
The amateur ultramarathon started on 15.07.2022 and continued until 17.07.2022. Participants in the marathon competed in 5 distances – 150km, 100km, 78km, 42km, and 21 km. According to tradition, dozens of children, residents, and guests of the city also took part in the symbolic city tour around Tryavna with a length of 3 km., in which the best and fastest participants were also distinguished.
We – the AMMI team, side by side with our partners fromBioBazar.bg– were at the START line to support all the participants. Together, we supported the marathoners by adding AMMI Meat Bar to their starter pack.
This year’s ultramarathon was marked by impressive results and impressive fair play, as in three of the distances the runners decided to share the victories, finishing together.
The first place among women on the longest distance of 150 km was undisputedly taken by Maya Taneva, who finished during the awards ceremony with a time of 28 hours and 12 minutes. Second came the representative of North Macedonia, Sanya Najdovski, who finished exactly 5 hours later. Third was Simona Rajcheva-Demerdzhieva with a time of 34 hours and 21 minutes. Only three women made it to the finish after the distance turned away almost all of the women who started.
A categorical victory in the men’s run was won by Rosen Rusev, who covered the men’s distance in a record 20 hours and 6 seconds. Teodor Georgiev came second (21 hours and 31 minutes), and Nikolay Nikolaev finished third (24 hours and 15 minutes).
AMMI team thanks for the opportunity to be a part of this exciting experience for everyone! Congratulations to all the winners and participants! Поздравления за всички победители и участници!
