The 38th Orlický maraton is planed to the first February weekend in the Deštné v Orlických horách. The tough terrain and just a little place to rest – that is a big challenge for the competitors. But downhill snowy meadows and tough cross-country tracks – that’s what attracts the most competitors. Choose your tracks - marathon 40 km classic, half distance with less elevation classic or skating. For less experienced cross-country skiers there is also a 10km track.
