Preview: 10th Race in Senožeče 2010
Senožeče (SLO), Sunday 11 April 2010
The race runs through the village of Laže.
If you like nice and friendly, relatively small running events in the countryside you can't go wrong with the races that are held all over the year in Slovenia's Karst, a beautiful limestone plateau region close to the Adriatic Sea.
This 11km race travels through the hills around the village of Senožeče, which is located about half-way between the world-famous, gigantic caves of Postojna and Škocjan. The port of Trieste in Italy is also just 30 kilometres away.
The route is moderately hilly, mostly on dirt roads, partly on asphalt. The start is a bit higher up than the finish, so that it's a fast downhill to the finish. The race runs through pretty forests and pastures, and through the somewhat scruffy village of Laže where you pass a huge quarry.
In 2009, the winners were Tomaž Ferjančič (38:11) and Sergeja Lipušček (49:11).
