31st St Martin's Run Izola 2011
Izola (Slovenia), Sunday 6 November 2011
The Martinov tek follows a hilly and scenic 10.9km multi-terrain route around the old fishing town of Izola on the Adriatic coast.
The start and the finish are on the grassy San Simon Beach (Plaža San Simon), which is situated about 1.5km to the west of Izola's old town.
Participants run along the waterfront promenade, and on bike paths, trails, and roads.
They run through vineyards and olive groves, along the disused "Parenzana" railway track, through an old railway tunnel, and past a fish factory, the old fishing harbour and the modern marina.
The race is held annually close to the feast day of St Martin (November 11), which is celebrated in Slovenia as the day when grape juice traditionally turns to wine.
Around 200 runners took part in last year's race. The top finishers were Boštjan Hrovat (36:59) and Mateja Šušteršič (44:45).
