The middle course (28k) will be counted as the 3rd round of the National Mountain Running Series, and the shortest course (13k) will be scored as the National Mountain Running Championship for Juniors.
There is ITRA certification for TUT 62 – 3 points and TUT 28 – 1 point.
The start of all races will be at the medieval Rača monastery (transport from Bajina Bašta is provided). Two longer trails will lead you by steep uphill to plateau of Kaludjerske Bare and the small Jarevac lake. TUT62 an TUT28 split at Račanska Šljivovica and ultra goes over the highest peak of Tara – Zborište, 1545 meters above sea level, then over the peaks of Iver, Kršanjska glavica and Gavran, passing by the viewpoints Osluša and Sokolarica. The two longer trails (TUT62 & TUT28) join again on the Sokolina plateau, from where there is a technical descent to the Lađevac waterfall and the Rača river canyon, where they join the shortest race (TUT12). In the first half, a small path leads you through attractive grounds around the Rača monastery, and then towards Bajina Bašta.

These are just some of the reasons why the first weekend of July should be reserved for Bajana Bašta, Tara and TUT! Welcome to Tara! We are looking forward and waiting for you!
