Slovenia's first major running event of the year, the Mali kraški maraton (Karst Half Marathon), draws a crowd of around 1,000 runners to the small town of Sežana which is situated in the Primorska region near the border with Italy, just about 14 kilometres from the city centre of the Adriatic port of Trieste.
Competitors have the choice between three undulating and scenic loop courses through the wooded Karst plateau (Slovene: kras, Italian: carso) which rises above the Adriatic Sea.
- 6.3km (Klančarjevih 6)
- 10.2km (10ka)
- 21.1km half marathon (polmaraton)
The 6.3km and 10.2km races take the runners on asphalt and gravel roads through woods on the Slovene side of the border.
The half marathon route runs through two countries—Slovenia and Italy. Participants run through the beautiful pastures of the famous Lipica Stud where Lipizzaner horses have been bred for over 400 years (pictured above), through the villages of Basovizza, Padriciano and Trebiciano in Italy and through the hamlet of Orlek in Slovenia. The race is run on asphalt roads. A short section is on gravel.
