Maratonina di Gorizia, Italy (Copyright © 2013 Hendrik Böttger / Run International EU)


The Maratonina Transfrontaliera Città di Gorizia features a gently-undulating and traffic-free half marathon course through two countries—Italy and Slovenia.

The race begins and ends in Gorizia, a pleasant border town of about 35,000 people, situated on the Italian side of the border.

Approximately half of the race is run through the towns of Šempeter and Nova Gorica in Slovenia.

The time limit to complete the course is 2 hours 30 minutes.

Participants in the half marathon must run for a recognized athletics club. In contrast, entries into the 6.5km fun run are open to everyone.
