‘Bovec Race’ 2009

Bovški tek - Start of the juniors (Copyright © 2009 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


What a beautiful setting for a run! Bovec is a small ski and holiday resort in the lush valley of the crystal clear river Soča and surrounded by mountain peaks of up to 2500 meters. Start and finish are on the airfield, which is a huge meadow covered with countless lovely little flowers.

Those who decide to run the short course of 3.2km will run once around the airfield. The 10km runners will make a detour down to the river for an additional lap on mixed terrain.

And don't miss the children's races - the place will be swarming with kids!!
