The Taborski tek (‘Tabor Run’) is held every year on a Friday evening in mid-summer in the small old town of Ljutomer in the lovely Prlekija region in eastern Slovenia, which is well-known for its fine wines and for the many white storks that breed there.

Starting and finishing on Ljutomer's main square (pictured below), the event offers an 8.5km road race (out and back to the village of Cezanjevci), a 3km multi-terrain run, and a number of children's races.

The event remembers the first mass rally (tabor) that was held in Ljutomer in the year 1868 in support of a unification of Slovene-inhabited areas within the Austrian Empire.
