On the 8th of August 2020, ASSIST Software participated in one of the most anticipated trail running competitions of the year – Bucovina Ultra Rocks.
The competition was organized by ULTRA LIFE Sport Club and Sport Management Events in Câmpulung Moldovenesc and included 5 races: 105 km, 87 km, 48 km, 30 km, and 17 km races on routes that reached the Rarău, Giumalău, and Pietrosu Bistriței peaks. As you can see, the competition was designed to attract a large variety of runners, from beginners who wanted to get a taste of trail running to advanced runners ready to take on the mountains.
How it went
The competition had a great start, and we had the weather on our side. The first race and the most challenging one – the Ultra Rocks 105k - started at 00:00 on August 8th from the Runc ski slope in Câmpulung Moldovenesc, followed by the 4 Summits 87k, Lady’s Rocks 43k, Rocky 30k and finishing with the shortest race – the Rumble Rock 17k fueled by ASSIST.
ASSIST Software sponsored the Rumble Rock fueled by ASSIST 17k race. We actively encourage and promote healthy habits and an active lifestyle, thus we are extremely proud of our 14 colleagues who took up the challenge and competed in three of the races: the 48k, 30k, and 17k races. All the hours spent training paid off for the runners as they got the chance to run in the picturesque lands of Bucovina and pass the finish line.
With the participation at Bucovina Ultra Rocks, ASSIST Software took another step on its mission to help the community grow, by encouraging an active lifestyle.
All the races ended on a positive note, and the competition was a real success all thanks to the reliability of the local partners and their willingness to promote our beautiful country and the spectacular zone in which the competition took place.
The organizers made sure that all the safety regulations were respected, and that all of the routes were thoroughly marked so no runner got lost.
We think we achieved our goal of bringing together sports lovers, offering them the experience of a lifetime, and letting them discover the beauty of Bucovina.
We want to congratulate our colleagues who participated in this amazing race. We are proud of their dedication for sport and their determination to win. Among the 14 representatives, they stood out with their special performance:
