The Tek prijateljstva (‘Friendship Run’) takes place in a remote and very beautiful karstic landscape in the Notranjska (Inner Carniola) region in Slovenia.

It's a running event for the whole family, with many more children than adults taking part.

All races begin and end in the village of Hotedršica which is approximately 26 kilometres from the famous Postojna Caves and 40 kilometres from Ljubljana.

The main race is 11.8 kilometres long and, with almost 200 metres of ascent, quite hilly. The circular route runs through forests, pastures and meadows, for the most part on gravel roads. The first half of the course is mainly uphill, the second half downhill.

In addition, the event offers a 4.8k run and several shorter races for the kids.

No pre-registration needed, just turn up.
