Synopsis: One of the best Bulgarian mountain runners – Kiril Nikolov, known as Disl, attempted to set a new record – to run through the longest and legendary Bulgarian mountain route – 600 km from the mountain peak of Kom on the west border to cape Emine on the Black Sea coast, in less than 5 days. Through steep mountain paths, pouring rain, and sticky mud, the glorious adventure takes him beyond the barriers of his own consciousness, facing hidden fears, pain and exhaustion. Tо the point where he has to make a tough choice – to quit or to push his will to the ultimate challenge, beyond his own limitations.
Kom-Emine is the longest tourist route in Bulgaria. It crosses the country from the western to the eastern point of the so-called “Old Mountain”. Through the years the route became a legend, attracting people from all around the country in an attempt to discover their inner strength and determination, their personal limitations, and the ability to overcome them. In fact it usually takes about 20 to 25 days to hike the distance of 600 km and 14 600 m altitude. In August 2014 Kiril Nikolov – Disl was going after a new record – to run from Kom to Emine and complete the challenge in less than 5 days.
