Past editions

Let us remind ourselves of the past editions, results, sweet hardships and personal success! Vodno-Matka Trail Marathon first edition was held in 2018 in unbelievable weather conditions - snow, fog, mud. On the other hand, the second edition in 2019 was completely in a perfect order. The third edition in 2020 was postponed and we had amazing night race. The 2021 edition in covid19 conditions had all of it - mud, snow, water and sun - the most demanding so far.

You were brave enough to accept the challenge last year or 2 years ago. Was it hard, tough, muddy, cold, hot? Were there boring insects, everlasting thirst or unexpected blisters? 
All of that became unimportant the moment you have crossed the finish line!
