The Pomladni tek (‘Spring Run’) attracts approximately 400 runners of all ages to the steel town of Jesenice which sits in the steep Upper Sava Valley in the alpine Gorenjska region in Slovenia.

The event comprises a 10k race and a number of shorter races for children and fun runners.

Starting and finishing at the protected Stara Sava (‘Old Sava’) ironworks complex, the 10k takes the runners on asphalt roads out and back along the valley.

A short portion of the course is on gravel.

The route, which is popular with local runners, cyclists and inline skaters all year round, is mainly flat. For the time of the race it is closed to traffic.

The event coincides with the Jožefov sejem (St Joseph's Fair), a traditional craft fair that is held yearly at the Stara Sava. The three-day fair features plenty of live music and many hawkers selling local and non-local products.
