The first kilometer from the start line runs on asphalt with minimum elevation gain. Poles are forbidden in this zone of the route. Next 5,5 km you go up along a dirt road with total elevation of 800m. At the end of the road there is a stream, where you can, for the first time since the start line, replenish water supplies. After crossing the stream the route goes up for 4 km with the total elevation gain of 800 meters. Winding through “kurumnik” (conglomeration of big rocks) the route will lead you to the Lake Syltran. After passing the Lake, you run for another kilometer among kurumnik with the elevation gain of 400 meters and go out the Syltran pass.
Here, you start the descend from the Pass, which goes along a very steep scree slope for the first kilometer followed by another kilometer on a more flat trail. Then, you will face the most steepest descend, which is very scary, according to the previous participants.
The next 2 kilometers is a more relaxed descend among alpine fields that will lead you to the bridge. After crossing the bridge, the route goes out to the road which takes you in 1 kilometer to the Food Chech point.
ATTENTION. After passing the Check Point, it is important to return to your trail. Syltran 33 goes down the road to the right when Suarykaush 44 and Chatkara 60 go up to the left. There are no roads or trails, just follow the way markers MARATHON to the left and up and go onto the traverse trail which is quite comfortable for running. The elevation gain is 150 meters.
Around the 21st kilometer of the race the MARATHON way markers will take you up from the trail. The Chatkara 60 route cuts across the serpentine and continues further up the road. On 23,7th kilometer of the route there is Shtolni Check Point. This is also the point where Chatkara 60 route joins the EWR route. For the next 3,5 km you run along a road with serpentine cuts and go out to the ridge, which is rocky and narrow in places with lots of cliffs on the right side and magnificent view. In 1,5 kilometer you will get to the highest point of the route – Chatkara Peak (3888m). Another 500meters down the ridge not far from the Subashi Pass, there is another rocky, steep in the beginning, descend into the valley of the Irik-Chat river.
After another 1,5 kilometer the route goes out to the trail that leads, in 12,5 km to the Elbrus Check point at the beginning of the Elbrus town. The road that takes you through both Elbrus and Tegenikli towns is good, mostly asphalt, unpaved in places. Right after Tegenikli town the route goes left to the highway near the bridge over Baksan River. Be careful crossing the highway. After crossing the bridge starts the Ecotrope, that for the first 3,5 km winds through the forest. Around the Glade of Narzan, the trail is also very good, with a lot of hikers and tourists. On the 55th kilometer the trail becomes asphalt road and leads to the Glade of Cheget. 50 meters on the left to continue your route along the Ecotrope. On the 56th kilometer you need to cross Baksan River but on the suspension bridge this time.
