The High Tatras for Runners

Overview

PETER VRBIČAN - former representative of Czechoslovakia in the Nordic combined

The training paths  described above are used for training by many runners, including Peter Vrbičan. After a few years' break, he has started active training again.  In the last two he has participated in marathons in Florence, Košice, and Nice - Cannes. He still has a chance of beating his personal record again mainly thanks to training in the mountain environment of the Tatras.

He will be happy to guide you in your training program in the Tatras.

All aspects of the training program can be tailored in a cooperation with Peter to meet your individual needs and requirements.
