The Miklavžev tek is a 5.3km uphill running race which includes about 300 metres of ascent. Participants run on a mix of asphalt roads and trails.
The start is at Terme Snovik, a thermal spa situated in the foothills of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, around 30 kilometres north of Slovenia's capital Ljubljana.
The finish line is at the church of Sv. Miklavž which stands on top of a wooded hill.
There will be alpine live music on the course and plenty of snacks at the finish. After the race, runners will get free entry to the spa to warm up in the thermal pools.
