The Maraton Logarska dolina offers four very scenic point-to-point races:

Race distance Start time
Start Finish Number of finishers 2015
73km 6.00 Celje Logarska dolina 153
9.00 Mozirje 58
10.30 Ljubno 84
11.30 Luče 282


All four races take the runners along the beautiful Savinjska dolina (Savinja Valley).

The 73km ultra marathon begins in Celje, Slovenia's third-largest town, located on the railway line between the cities of Ljubljana and Maribor.

With 3km to go to the finish, the route turns left into the Logarska dolina (Logar Valley), a picture-postcard glacial valley in the majestic Kamniško-Savinjske Alpe (Kamnik-Savinja Alps)

The course is undulating and overall uphill. The ultra marathon features approximately 2,300 metres of ascent and 1,750 metres of descent!

The race is run mainly on roads which are open to the public, so runners need to be aware of traffic. Parts of the course are on trails.

Last year, the ultra marathon was won by Gábor Muhari of Hungary in a time of 5 hours 14 minutes 7 seconds. Slovenia's Neža Mravlje, the fastest woman, finished in 5 hours 33 minutes 19 seconds. The time limit to complete the course is twelve hours.
