The Ormoški nočni ulični tek (‘Ormož Night Street Run’) is held every year on the eve of the Slovene Statehood Day, which is celebrated on 25 June to commemorate Slovenia's declaration of independence from Yugoslavia in 1991.

Women run five laps (4km) and men run six laps (4.8km) of an undulating 800m-long loop course through the town centre of Ormož, a small town of about 2,100 people, situated in a wine-producing region in the eastern part of Slovenia, on the border with Croatia.

Over the years, the event has attracted a large number of top runners.

Last year, 117 runners took part in the Ormož night races. The fastest finishers were Hungary's Zsolt Koszár (13min 53sec) and Zita Kácser (13min 23sec).
