Run Around The Clock ULTRA /RATCU/ is the first mountain ultra-running event in Bulgaria similar to „LAST MАN STANDING”. Accepting the challenge of participating in RATCU, each participant has only two options, either to stand alone at the top of the honor ladder, or to record the most suffering technical DNF in his running career.
The goal of each RATCU participant is to run as many laps as possible on a circular track / 11.5km, L + 525m / with diverse terrain within 2 / two / hours for each lap.
All of the participants start the first lap at the same time with a mass start, and then the “SURVIVERS” start each subsequent lap again together with the mass start, exactly two hours after the start of the previous lap.
The “SURVIVORS” are all of those runners who have managed to complete a lap within two hours. Failure to engage in a cutoff of 2 hours on any lap and / or start with the others at exactly the second hour of the previous start will result in immediate disqualification.
The winner is the runner who manages to complete within the control lap time (two hours), commutatively one lap more than all other participants.
