The start will take place in front of the cultural home in Rasinari. The route climbs through the village alleys towards the village of Prislop.
After leaving the village, after about 1km, the marathon runners (along with the half marathon and ultra marathon runners) will turn right to go around the village of Prislop and follow the climb to Rosengarten. This will be marked on the access road to Măgura. After about 6.5km, you will exit into the secondary ridge under the power line and follow the road to the main ridge connecting the vf. Măgura and Păltiniș. After another 1km we will reach the feeding point at the MGS hut where the volunteers will allow only those who fit the 1:45 time limit at the start to continue the route.
From here you descend on the yellow point marking towards Valea Sadului on a narrow path. When you reach the road, turn right and follow the asphalt for 800m. At the first bridge on the left side, follow the path up the Prejbei Valley on a forest road. After 700m the trail turns left and through the local courtyards you follow an unmarked tourist path for about 2km until the next Berali feeding point where you have a time limit of 3h:30.
From here you descend on the Red Cross marking for 2.8km back to the Sadului Valley. At the bottom of the hill go left, following the course of the river along the slightly marshy left bank for about 2.7km to a stone bridge where you cross the river. From here cross the road and continue the route following the red point marking until you reach the bend of Măgura about 3km, then another 500m to the Rosengarten spring, and from here run left along the red line marker to the Rosengarten refuge and back to the MGS feed point.
From here the trail climbs to Apa Cumpănită on the main ridge of the Cindrel Mountains marked with a red line marking. At the Apa Cumpanita junction turn right on the blue line marking and continue on the road down from Păltiniș. On the area with Plai intersect the cross trail and descend to Nea' Ion's hut, where there is the last feeding point. From here it is downhill on trails for about 5km to Rășinari and the finish of the competition.
