Blaguški tek, children's race (Copyright © 2010 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


The Blaguški tek multi-terrain races are held on an attractive 3-kilometre loop course in the rolling hills of eastern Slovenia. Men run 9km and women run 6km.

The start and finish are at Lake Blaguš (Blaguško jezero), a lovely little reservoir located near the village of Sveti Jurij ob Ščavnici. Due to the proximity to the borders with Austria, Hungary and Croatia, the event regularly attracts a fair number of participants from neighbouring countries.

The route is mildly undulating and very pretty. Competitors run through fields and woods, mostly on trails and grass. A 500-metre-long uphill section is on an asphalt road.

The start is at 3pm but it's worth to come a bit earlier to watch the children's races. The event ends with a barbecue in the forest.

In 2010, Hungary's twelve-year-old Nora Csebits celebrated victory in the women's race in 24min 57sec. Zdenko Klemenčič of Slovenia won the men's race in 28min 50sec.
