Sky Master will start at 8.00 AM from mountain house Bogićevica home of PSK HRID at 1.460m. This race will take 29 km and 1.600 m of elevation loss and gain. The first control and refreshment will be at 9th kilometer near old watchtower Bjelaj along with border with Albania. At 15th kilometer you’ll have additional control and small refreshment near Dvojnice. The second control and refreshment will be at 24th kilometer at mountain house Bogićevica. Time limit set for this race is at Dvojnice at 11.00 AM and on the finish line at 01.00 PM.

The very first 4 km you will run on macadam (stone) road to mountain house Bajrovića. From that point you’ll run on narrow „goat“ trails up to Hrid lake. Next 19 km up to 23 km mark you will run on narrow border trails. Once you approach ridge Krš Bogićevice, trail will lead you to the right opposite of peak and on saddle to the left and down to the watchtower that will be visible if weather allows us. There you will have first control and refeshment. From that point you will continue through wider trail that turns right from trail sign and leads the way to ridge trail that borders Montenegro and Albania up to the peak of Maja e Spalit (B28). You will have clear and panoramic view along extremely runable trail up to Tromedja. You’ll continue below the peak up to 15th kilometer where additional control Dvojnice (Ćafa Bogićes) will be made. From that point you’ll continue right and up to peak Maja Rops (2.501m) and down to the passage Ćafa Belega where you’ll NOT continue on macadam (stone) road that would take you to Dečani BUT on narrow „goat“ trails to mountain house Bogićevica.
