The History Run track links Corvinilor’s Castle to Deva’s fortress and has 28 km. The track goes through many picturesque areas and hills, but it is mainly asphalt.
The run track can be completed in 2 ways to validate the rules:
– Relay race of 4 people ( approx. 7km for each person)
It is possible to complete the race in both ways, but the person has to be the one that starts the relay and must also pay both entrance fees.
The relay stops will be placed in locations where people can hydrate and eat along the track.
Start History Run
The race will start from Corvinilor's castle in Hunedoara, where we have a big parking lot that can be used to warm up and socialize. The first 250 m of the track will take place in the Castle's garden and a few streets where the road is paved with cobblestone and thus we advise you to be careful and not hurt yourself if you fall. After that, the track goes by the front of Hunedoara's city hall and then the main boulevard, where the traffic will be closed off along the track.
THE FIRST RELAY CHANGE
After exiting the city, the track will continue in a slight descent. This is where you can speed up your pace by a little bit. The change of runners will be made at the Petrom gas station on a lateral side near the road. A place for eating and drinking will also be placed here. This first relay track is great for contestants that are used to running through the city where they need to be careful about the traffic and pedestrians. The track is flat yet the length of the boulevard can cause problems through its monotony.
After just one kilometer from the relay change point, the track will make a left turn and leaves the road, entering a rural portion. The longest uphill section which is 1.4km with an incline of 5% will show up right after crossing the intersection. Just as you are about to enter the forest, on your left, a cemetery can be used as a resting point. Before entering Almasu Mic, there will be a descent of about 700 meters. After leaving the village, a nice little challenge awaits. Called "Hill Froomie" by our cyclist friends, there are 100 meters with an incline of 11%. Having run past this hill, a beautiful scenery will unveil itself through which you will run until you enter the Popesti village. Here the road will have a small incline of around 1-2% that gets tiring after a while. You should not force yourself here as the harder slopes are yet to come.After just one kilometer from the relay change point, the track will make a left turn and leaves the road, entering a rural portion.

THE SECOND RELAY CHANGE
The second relay change will take place at the 13.3th kilometer, on the right side of the road, where another nutrition point will be placed. You should pick your strongest teammate here, as this is where the most difficult part of the race starts. There will be lots of uphills and downhills. The second big uphill of 1.1km and a slope of 6.6% is located around the 17th kilometer. After the first 300 meters, you will get to a flat place where you can rest a bit. Having made it to the top, a decline of 1.7km will strain your knees a little more than you'd think. Here you can run with a speed of about 2km/h. Right at the base of this descent, in the center of the Alamasu Sec village, another relay change will be done and with it, of course, a nutrition point.
THE THIRD RELAY CHANGE
From here, your last teammate should be well warmed-up, because after 4-500 meters you will find yourself entering the hardest uphill section: 0.7km in length with a slope of 8.5%, which includes the place called "the jaw tooth": 50 meters with a 12% slope. From here onwards, the track is mainly flat or descending until Deva. The track crosses a very beautiful forest. Right there we will cross the psychological threshold of 21km of semi-marathon. Please take note that before entering the city there is a place where you will abruptly descend 100 meters with a 10% slope and ascend 150m with the same slope called the Yogurt Pit. We're sorry but we are not allowed to disclose how this name was chosen :).
You will be thankful to see that until entering the city you will descend 1.8km with a slope of 7.8%. The track will go through the town and will almost come to its end. You will enter the city's park which is right at the base of the fortress. From there on you will run uphill until you get to the fortress' gates, where the finish of the track is placed. We won't tell you anything about this last part but know this: the ones who built this fortress right on top of this volcanic cone were all in a very good physical condition. Success!
