Jahorina is a mountain and ski resort located near the municipality of Pale, Sarajevo. Part of the Dinaric Alps, it has a summit elevation of 1916 meters and presents the highest point of B-HARD Ultra Race. Jahorina hosted the Women’s alpine skiing events of the 1984 Winter Olympics and 2019 EYOF.

Road to CP8 will definitely separate men from the boys. Straight out of Višegrad you will need to tackle a 17 km climb with 50 bends and over 1000 m of elevation gain. Then, a bit later on, a 21 km drag up to 1170 m/alt awaits you, followed by a hairpin-riddled downhill section. Only then will you be presented with a 16 km climb up to Cima Coppi of the route @ 1670 m, with a very steep last km. You will be very glad to have reached CP8 and to enjoy a refreshment at Guesthouse Rajska Vrata (The Gate of Heaven).

The climb up Jahorina Mountain is also timed for the B-HARD King of Mountain Challenge.
