This summer evening running event draws approximately 200 to 250 runners of all ages to the low-lying fertile Pomurska region in the far east of Slovenia.

The start/finish area is on the main square of Ljutomer, a small town of about 3,500 people, situated just a few kilometres from the border with Croatia and also not far from the borders with Hungary and Austria.

Participants can choose to compete in the 8.5km road race (which is out and back to the village of Cezanjevci), the 3km run (which is held on mixed terrain), or the children's races (but only if they are not older than fifteen years).
