River Krka in Novo Mesto, Slovenia (Copyright © 2011 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)

 

The Park tek (‘Park Run’) is a running event held annually in spring in Slovenia.

It features two races for children (300m, 600m) and a 9k race, starting and ending in Novo mesto, a picturesque old town that squeezes into a hairpin bend of the beautiful Krka river.

Located approximately 70 kilometres vom Slovenia's capital Ljubljana and 75 kilometres from Croatia's capital Zagreb, Novo mesto is home to about 22,000 people which makes it the largest town in the Dolenjska (Lower Carniola) region.

The route runs out and back along the left bank of the river. The race is run mainly on gravel paths. Apart from a few short ascents, the course is flat. The turning point is near the village of Češča Vas.

All proceeds will be donated to a good cause.
