There is around 900 pits on the 0,7km2 of terrain – globally unique! The attached part of the map suffices to describe it. Let this terrain convince you to join Wawel Cup! Watch out cause even the best runners may go crazy here!

Olkusz Drift

During Wawel Cup 36. second stage we will face quite a different terrain that the one from stage I. The terrain from previous year’s Grand Prix Małopolska will be expanded by western part of the forest. It will allow us to held the long distance in highly interesting terrain! The outstanding element of second stage will be the old Olkusz drift. The forest will welcome you with wealth of subtle contour details, half-open terrains and for the dessert… a warm-up before stage III!


The time left to our competitions is running fast so we are delighted to present you yet another runner who will benefit from free entry fee. (Remember that we want to give you as many of those free packages as possible!) The lucky one is Jerzy Porzycz representing UKS Azymut 45 Gdynia. To be honest, we are quite surprised that we have the opportunity to announce this winner a month earlier than last year. We can’t wait for another 36.! What is more, we are happy to share that there are runners from Germany and Switzerland on our registered participants list. For now, there will be 14 flags waving during Wawel Cup! See you!
