With a wonderful time in the beautiful nature around Moieciu de Sus held the EcoMarathon 2012, race ‘twinned’ years with the Olympus Marathon. Fans Romanians celebrate the Greek struggle massively every year, so she has developed a special relationship after excluding other are both games of the series MNRIC (Mountain Running International Cup). The route cleverly designed as a shamrock (a trademark of the game) was removed and passed through three cycles 2 times from the beautiful village thus enabling viewers and friends of athletes to support them and their apotheosis.

In the race of men was the pedestal Romanian. Winner of the Romanian Ionut Zinca of Valetudo Skyrunning Team with a time of 3 hours and 35 minutes which was the lead of the race from the start. Great battle was up to 5km from the finish for the next two podium positions where eventually George Buta, local runner took second place with 3:59:42 and Ionut Galiteanu the third with 4:03:39.

In women known Italian Cecilia Mora of Valetudo Skyrunning Team took the victory as comfortable with the “colleague” in 4 hours and 22 minutes and occupying a highly prestigious 11th position overall. The second and third position was occupied by Isabella Labonia and Daniela Marin with 4:35:15 and 4:44:56 respectively, positions considered here in the last kilometers of the last cycle.

In the struggle involved athletes from 20 countries, which obviously gives it an international character.
