The Transylvanian Bear Race is not just a race, it's a weekend of adventure and exploration of the wilds of Transylvania.

Entrants are made up of international runners, who have flown to Romania specifically for the event, and local Romanian runners. We offer a different pricing structure and service level for each of these groups:


Ultramarathon: £150
Marathon: £110

The registration fee includes much more than race entry alone:

- airport transfers
- race supper and breakfast
- two nights accommodation
- race medal
- finishers t-shirt
- post-race party in Sighisoara

We took the view that it was easier for us to manage the logistics once you land in Romania: the race start camp is in a remote and inaccessible location in the verdant heart of the Transylvanian countryside; it is not easy to find if you are self-navigating from the airport; restaurants and facilities are few and far between.

This will allow runners to focus entirely on the race (and chance encounters with local wildlife).


Ultramarathon: £40
Marathon: £30

The entry fee includes:

- race supper and breakfast
- race medal
- finishers t-shirt

Tickets to the post race party can be bought for an additional fee.
