Live tracking by BB Tracker

Via Regia starts in Berlin and Gniezno and ends in Warsaw. We are preparing a unique starting and finishing place – we have several options and as soon as the final decision is made, we will announce it in our media.

The longer route (gold) running from Berlin to Warsaw will be approximately 650 km. The shorter one (silver) from Gniezno to Warsaw will take about 300 km.

When preparing the route, we selected unforgettable sections that will pass through historical and unique natural places. It is possible to leave the route for overnight stays, shopping, bicycle service, medical assistance or other activities necessary to complete the race. In case of leaving the ultramarathon route, the runner is obliged to return to the route in the place where he left it.

Asphalts, gravel, forest and field roads, paths and embankments. In short, everything you need in an adventure rally.

Yes and no! We have prepared two categories of participation for participants – when taking part in a “self-supported” race, you can use the help of other competitors. The “supported” category allows for external support. The use of organized help from outside persons by a “self-supported” competitor will lead to disqualification.

Yes, you can go in twos, threes or even tens. This is a great adventure for such a group.

Yes, competitors start with a maximum of 12 people. About 1-2 weeks before the start, we will accept applications for specific starting groups.

No, but we will recommend accommodation at a reasonable price, which we will also use ourselves.
