Belasitsa Sky Run is a trail race that follows the ridge of one of the mountains with the most beautiful panoramas on the Balkan Peninsula. During the event the participants will enjoy views of three countries (Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia and Greece) and will see the three highest mountains on the Balkans (Rila, Olympus and Pirin). Two beautiful lakes (Dojran and Kerkini) make the panoramas even more breathtaking, while Struma River valley and the picturesque villages at the foot of the Mountain add to the atmosphere of the race. The trail passes next to beautiful waterfalls, among them the highest waterfall in FYR Macedonia - Smolarski and the Shy (Kamenishki) waterfall in Bulgaria which is shyly hidden deep in the slopes of the Mountain. The participants will also have the opportunity to run in midst of the centuries-old chestnut forests - the symbol of Belasitsa Mountain. Belasitsa Sky Run is the first international trail running race between Bulgaria and FYR Macedonia and aims to bring together the outdoor lovers from both countries and provide them with a place for a friendly competition and a forum for exchange of ideas and entertainment. Belasitsa Sky Run Short route is 27.3 km long and starts from the village of Smolari in FYR Macedonia climbs steeply to the Mountain ridge near the Smolarski Waterfall and the Sharena cheshma tourist chalet, passes through the challenging Peak of Cut Rock Peak (1785 m.a.s.l.) and crosses the border with Bulgaria under the Tumba Peak, where the borders of Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia and Greece meet. On the Bulgarian territory the route continues with a picturesque passage on top of the ridge of the Mountain and descends through cool beech and chestnut forests to the village of Klyuch.
