High Scardus Ultra is a UTMB Index Race and part of ITRA, an international trail running event organized for the first time in the Sharr mountain range connecting North Macedonia with Kosovo, and their runners, athletes, enthusiasts, environmentalists, organizations and brands. The race is a joint cross-boundary project involving local communities, which offers unforgettable adventure in an unspoiled natural setting – a true disconnect from the stress of modern society. The runners start in Kosovo and finish the race in North Macedonia.

We hope to see you in our magnificent backyard – the Sharr Mountain range!
With love, The High Scardus team

Two brand new races, to see Sharr Mountain’s new faces

The race with a terrific viewpoint of Jelak! Also named the trail of cheerful ups and downs. It starts in Popova Sapka, N. Macedonia and finishes there. You’ll do a loop, get to see the mountains, and come back for some food and drinks. The entry-level trail-run!

The only cross-border trail-running race. You start in Prizren, Kosova and finish in Popova Sapka, N. Macedonia. You get to see many trails of the Sharr Mountains. It is for more advanced trail-runners who want to test themselves in medium distances.
