Terme Snovik (Slovenia), Sunday 1 December 2013
The Miklavžev tek (‘Nicholas Run’) is a 5.3km uphill race that is held annually in early December in the foothills of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in northern Slovenia.
The route features approximately 300 metres of ascent.
Starting at the thermal spa of Terme Snovik, competitors run on a mix of asphalt roads and trails up to the church of Sveti Miklavž (Saint Nicholas) which stands at about 750 metres above sea level on top of a wooded hill.
After the race, participants get free entry to the thermal pools of Terme Snovik.
In 2012, the Miklavžev tek had almost 200 finishers. The winners were Slovenia's international elite athletes Mitja Kosovelj (20:57) and his sister Mateja (24:42).
