The Jizerska Padesatka (50 of Jizera) was established as a race testing performance for the mountain climbers from the TJ Lokomotiva Liberec club, who prepared themselves for severe mountaineering expeditions at the end of the sixties. The race was organised by the Ski club of Liberec town. The first race was held on the last Saturday in January, 1968 with 52 competitors taking part; it led through the Jizera mountains from the village of Bedrichov to Korenov and back.
