In 2019, Kristiyan Kirilov won the duathlete race, who, during the weekend, first cycle 100 kilometers and then run the same distance. He finished with a total time of 14:26:26 to beat his own course record (15:32.44) by a unique 54 minutes. The importance of this achievement is enhanced by the fact that Christian circumnavigated Vitosha twice in one day and three hours.
