Rekord Šmarne gore is a mountain running event in Slovenia's capital Ljubljana.

It features a short but highly demanding uphill course.

The route is just 1.8 kilometres long but it includes 360 metres of elevation gain!

Starting in Tacen in the north-western part of Ljubljana, competitors run on steep forest trails to the finish line at the monastery that stands on top of Šmarna gora (669m), Slovenia's most popular hiking destination.

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: Petro Mamu of Eritrea (11 minutes 8 seconds) and Mateja Kosovelj of Slovenia (13 minutes 18 seconds).

The time limit to finish the race is 40 minutes.
