Around 100 runners completed last year's Tek na Gorjance, an uphill running race through dense forests in a remote location in Slovenia's Dolenjska region.

The route is 6.2km long. It features a moderate elevation gain of 430m.

The start is at a small bridge across the River Pendirjevka, deep in the forest, about 4km south of the village of Cerov Log and 20km from the town of Novo Mesto.

Participants run on gravel roads up the Gorjanci (Croatian: ‘Žumberak’), a hill range on the Slovenia-Croatia border, popular for its lush vegetation and its many springs and clear streams.

The finishing line is at the church of Sveti Miklavž which stands at an elevation of 964m on top of a hill.

In 2012, the fastest finishers were Toni Habjan (27:21) and Nataša Aljančič (33:45).
