Kranjskogorska 10ka, Slovenia - 10k runners on the cycleway between Kranjska Gora and Rateče (Copyright © 2019 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)

 

The Kranjskogorska 10ka (‘Kranjska Gora 10k’) takes runners out and back along the Upper Sava Valley between the ski resort of Kranjska Gora (pictured above) and Slovenia's border with Italy.

Held annually on Assumption Day (15 August), the event attracts about 150 runners every year.

Starting and finishing in front of the oldest hotel in town, Hotel Razor, the race is run on a cycleway along the valley, passing the source of the Sava Dolinka river as well as Kranjska Gora's ski pistes, including the steep Podkoren slope where the Pokal Vitranc World Cup races take place each winter.

The turnaround point is near the village of Rateče and the Planica ski jumps.

The first half of the course is slightly uphill (ca. 40 metres of ascent), the second half downhill.

In addition to the 10k race, the event offers a 400-metre fun run for children.
