Participants in the Tek prijateljstva run 11.8km of a hilly circular route through a beautiful karstic landscape in Slovenia's Notranjska region.

The race begins and ends in the village of Hotedršica, which is approximately 25km from the famous Postojna Caves and 40km from the capital Ljubljana.

The route runs through forests, pastures and lovely meadows, for the most part on gravel roads.

The first half of the course is mainly uphill, the second half downhill. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is about 150 metres.

In case you have a friend who prefers to cycle you could form a team of two to take part in the kolotek (‘bikerun'). The cyclists start off at 4.45pm, the runners at 5pm. The finishing times will be added.
