Jánošík

Xtreme triathlon, which will lead you through beautiful nature and places where Slovak national hero Juraj Jánošík was born and lived. During his life he helped poor people and his life was full or victories and failures. This race will not be easy. It´s wonderful and magical, but also demanding and challenging.

To be a JÁNOŠÍK finisher, you must swim 3,8 km at dark dam Oravská priehrada with midnight start, bike 185 km from Orava region to Terchová with 2600 m of elevation including 8 climbs with 12 – 17 % slope. As a dessert, a realy challengig marathon is prepared for you at birthplace of Juraj Jánošík – Terchová with more than 3200 m of elevation.

It will be a day full of adventure, beautiful nature, humility, pain, friendship and happiness.

Impressions

I just enjoy doing the race so much! I’m the most happy when I’m 2-3 hours into the cycle. Then I am just so happy! I'm always singing out loud and I ruin my race, because I push too hard.

Hårek Stranheim, NO

I enjoy most the whole journey, which has its long festive day, where I can push myself a bit further with my team and all of this in astonishing surroundings.

Mikko Lehmuskoski, FI

Surroundings, friendship between teams and your team pushing you forward. Awesome feeling.

That an xtri is not only with you on race day but from the moment you have an inkling it might be for you and then for the rest of the day. And I loved the soup on Gaustatoppen.
