The Mali kraški maraton draws around 2500 runners to the small town of Sežana which sits on the thinly-populated Karst Plateau on the Slovenia-Italy border.

Two scenic races are on offer:

The 9.4km race is run entirely on Slovenian soil, mostly through woods.

The 21.1km half marathon features an undulating route through both Slovenia and Italy. Competitors run through the Lipica Stud (pictured), where Lipizzaner horses have been bred for over 400 years, and through a number of small villages, mostly on asphalt roads. Approximately 300m of the course are on gravel.
