Held in the rolling hills of eastern Slovenia, the Blaguški tek offers a 9k race for men (three laps), a 6k for women (two laps), a 3k run, and children's races.

The route is a very scenic, undulating 3km loop, mostly on trails and gravel roads. A 500m-long uphill section is on asphalt.

The start and finish are at the lovely little reservoir of Blaguško jezero (Lake Blaguš), located near the village of Sveti Jurij ob Ščavnici.

Around 250 runners, many of them from nearby Hungary and Austria, took part in last year's Blaguški tek and in the following barbecue in the woods.

Garami Árpád of Hungary won the 9k men's race in a time of 29min 49sec. Slovenia's Sonja Neger was the fastest finisher in the women's 6k (22min 51sec).
