Course description:

1st Loop/ Cross course: approx. 14,2km

START: Moieciu de Sus -> La Mandru -> Fundata -> Moieciu de Sus

The START of the EcoMarathon is from the centre of Moieciu de Sus, in front of the House of Culture. The first loop follows the asphalt from “Valea Popii” and continues 1km on the country-road.

The trail crosses the river on a wooden bridge on the right side of the valley and covers the steep slope ascending trough the forest „La Mandru” where is the first hydration point(only water). After another 700m of smooth ascent the course is suddenly turns right following a marked trail (country road – red line) going down from “Muntele Sf. Ilie” to Fundatica village in Valea Cheii. From here the course continues right on the road and then leave immediatly on the left side with a sustained but short climb, and after another 1.5km of alternate short ascends the course reaches CP1, a refreshment check point with energy beverages and food. From here the course continues 800m on the paved road and then turns right on a small alley between the houses and get back into another dirt road. After a few hundred meters the last ascent of Loop 1 begins going to a boundary road. From here the trail descends gently at first and then more steeply to the Moieciu de Sus along a George’s path. The last part of descent is quite steep and the path should be followed exactly without stepping outside it, to avoid damage to the meadow. The last 300 meters of paved road takes you to Moieciu de Sus in the central point (CP2), which marks the arrival of the competitor on the Cross race and ends the 1st Loop of the Marathon race.
