RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon

The TWELFTH edition of the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon took place in Georgia.

In the first race for 18 months, due to COVID-19, competitors representing 29 countries raced 250km / 155 miles across the Southern Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia. They experienced the green valleys, National Parks, monasteries from medieval times, and picturesque countryside villages dotted around the mountains.

Relive the race though for photos, videos, results and blogs.
