Run through Panovec
This is a mixed-terrain run on a mildly undulating course through the Panovec forest in Nova Gorica, very close to the Italian border. Most of the route is on forest trails and dirt roads, just about 1km on asphalt. It's a pleasant run through a pretty forest with many different species of trees.
