Note:
• Our recommendation for the participants of the Kós 10 and Kós 25A tours is to arrive at the Stana Railway Station by train and NOT by car (to protect the environment and because of the bad condition of the road and the low number of parking places: max. 10-15)
• Participants of the Kós 25B tour can get from Jebucu to the centre of the village of Stana on a macadam road of 4 km in good condition. They can leave their cars in the centre of the village of Stana until the end of the course.
• No return transportation to Cluj will be provided for the participants of courses Kós 10 and Kós 25 as they will be able to catch one of the afternoon trains.
• According to our calculations, the participants of endurance course Kós D55, will be able to return to Cluj by train, once they reach the ARRIVAL point, but for cases of emergency the organisers will be able to ensure return transportation by car.
