The Nočna 10ka is an annual summer night 10k race around Lake Bled, a picture-postcard alpine tourist destination in the Julian Alps in Slovenia.

Every year, the event attracts a crowd of over 2,000 runners.

One lap around the lake is six kilometres, so the race is a bit shorter than two laps (6km+4km).

The route is undulating. From start to finish, it includes 170 metres of ascent.

The race kicks off at 10pm in the town centre of Bled. The finish line is at the Rowing Centre Bled (Slovene: Veslaški Center Bled), two kilometres from the start.
