With approximately 4,000 finishers in four races (5.5km, 10km, half marathon, marathon), the Maraton treh src (Three Hearts Marathon) is by far the biggest running event in the eastern part of Slovenia.

In 2016, both the half and the full marathon will be held on a new course.

As in the previous years, all races will begin and end at the Zdravilišče Radenci, a thermal spa resort in the small town of Radenci, which is located in a low-lying agricultural region near the border with Austria.

The route will take the runners to the town of Gornja Radgona, across the border into Austria, and through the old town of Bad Radkersburg.

From there, the half marathon runners will run back to Radenci whereas the marathon runners will run a 21km-long loop through farmland and villages, both in Austria and Slovenia. After that, they will run home to the finish in Radenci.

About 2km of the course will be run on a gravel road.

The time limit to complete the 42.2km marathon will be six hours.
