This mountain running event in Slovenia's capital city Ljubljana features a short but highly demanding uphill course.

The race features 360m of elevation gain over a 1.8km route.

Starting at the foot of Šmarna gora, Slovenia's most popular hiking destination, the race is run on well-trodden hiking trails.

The finish line is at the monastery that stands on top of the hill (669m).

The children's race kicks off at 5.30pm, the women's race at 6pm and the men's race at 6.30pm.

World-class mountain runners hold the course records — Azerya Teklay of Eritrea (11 minutes 11 seconds) and Mateja Kosovelj of Slovenia (13 minutes 18 seconds). The time limit to finish the race is 40 minutes.
