Kros v Lipici, 8K men (Copyright © 2010 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


The annual Kros v Lipici cross-country running races are held in the famous stud farm of Lipica where Lipizzaner horses have been bred for more than 400 years.

Participants run several loops on one of the beautiful pastures of the farm which is situated very close to the border with Italy and to the port city of Trieste.

The race distance depends on the runner's age category:

  • 300m-2km: children
  • 4km: juniors (born 1993-1996)
  • 6km: men (born 1966 or earlier) and women (born 1992 or earlier)
  • 8km: men (born 1967-1992)

Last year, 130 runners of all ages took part in the event.

The Kros v Lipici is the last of a series of four cross-country running races in Slovenia's Primorska region. Most runners use the races to build up stamina, test their shape, meet people and have fun. The entry fees are very low (€4).
