Kostanjevica na Krki (Slovenia), Sunday 11 September 2011
This scenic 9-kilometre multi-terrain race in Slovenia's Dolenjska region brings runners to the lovely small town of Kostanjevica na Krki, built in the 13th century on an island in the River Krka.
The route is an undulating loop which includes about 120 metres of ascent. Participants run through agricultural land, woods and villages, and they pass the Kostanjevica Abbey.
