Staged near the picturesque medieval hilltop village of Štanjel, this event promises a nice day out in Slovenia's Primorska region.

Štanjel is located on the Karst limestone plateau, around 25 kilometres from the Adriatic Sea.

Competitors run 8.2km on undulating dirt roads, mainly through forest. One kilometre is on asphalt.

After the race participants usually indulge in local culinary delights - air-dried pršut ham and Teran, a slightly sour, ruby-red wine.

In 2009, the winners were Boštjan Hrovat (28:49) and Vesna Hedžet (38:48).
