The River Krka in Kostanjevica na Krki, Dolenjska, Slovenia (Copyright © 2017 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)

 

The Kostanjeviški tek (Kostanjevica Run) forms part of the Teki Dolenjske race series which is held every year in the rolling hillls of the Dolenjska (Lower Carniola) region in Slovenia.

Participants run 9km of a challenging multi-terrain course which includes about 120m of ascent (and the same of descent). Approximately 5.7km of the race are run on asphalt roads, 2.5km on gravel roads and 800m on trails.

The start and the finish are at the primary school of Kostanjevica na Krki, Dolenjska's smallest town with just about 700 inhabitants. It is also the oldest town in the region, founded in the 13th century on an island in the River Krka (pictured).

The route runs through lovely countryside and little villages, and it also passes the imposing Kostanjevica Abbey.
