35th Three Hearts Marathon 2015
Radenci (Slovenia), Saturday 16 May 2015
The Maraton treh src in Slovenia is held in the small mineral-water-producing town of Radenci which is located in a low-lying agricultural region on the border with Austria.
With 3,655 finishers in four races (5.5km, 10km, half marathon, marathon), the event was once again the biggest running event in the eastern part of Slovenia last year.
All races begin at the Zdravilišče Radenci, a spa resort with thermal indoor and outdoor pools — a fine place to relax after the race.
The 42.2km marathon consists of two laps of a flat AIMS-certified course through farmland and villages.
Many athletes have tried to set a personal best marathon time in Radenci but this has proven to be rather difficult as it can get very warm in the region in mid-May, and there's hardly any shade on the course.
Thus, finishing times have often been below expectations.
Last year, 235 runners completed the full marathon. The winners were Elisha Kiprotich Sawe of Kenya (2:19:16) and Tünde Szabó of Hungary (2:44:35).
The time limit to complete the first lap of the marathon is 2 hours 15 minutes.
