Tek trojk, Ljubljana, Slovenia - Around 2,000 teams of three runners take part in the event every year (Copyright © 2017 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)

 

The Tek trojk (‘Troika Run’) is a running event for teams of three runners, held annually in May in Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia.

It forms part of the annual celebrations that commemorate the liberation of Ljubljana at the end of World War Two.

Usually, the event attracts approximately 5,000 participants in three races:

  • 3km for school teams
  • 12.5km
  • 29km

It is not possible to take part in any of these races as an individual runner. Participants must form a team of three runners (male, female or mixed). All three team members must run the full distance, and the three must cross the finish line together.

Starting and ending in Ljubljana's beautiful historic centre, both the 12.5km and the 29km routes are single-loop courses that take the runners through the eastern part of the city and across the densely-wooded Golovec hill.

Some portions of the course are on gravel roads or trails.
