Ljubljana Marathon - runners on Dunajska cesta in the Bežigrad District (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


Held in Slovenia's capital Ljubljana, one of Europe's smaller capital cities with just about 285,000 inhabitants, the Ljubljanski maraton is a massive running event with more than 15,000 finishers in three races:

Race distance
Start time
No. of finishers 2014
10km  8.30 6059 (2462 men + 3597 women)
21.1km 10.30 7189 (4437 men + 2752 women)
42.2km 10.30 1884 (1508 men + 376 women)


The new marathon course, introduced last year, is a single loop course. Until 2013, participants in the full marathon had to run two laps of the half marathon course.

Starting and finishing in the city centre, the first 20km of the race are run through the northern and western parts of Ljubljana.

The marathon and the half marathon routes split shortly before the 21km mark. The half marathon runners turn left to dash to the finish line on the beautiful Congress Square, whereas the marathon runners turn right for an extra loop through the southern and eastern parts of the city.

The time limit to finish the marathon race is five hours.
