19th Ptuj Half Marathon 2010
Ptuj (Slovenia), Sunday 5 September 2010
A race along both banks of the River Drava.
This running event in eastern Slovenia gives you a good reason to visit Ptuj, Slovenia's oldest town. With its compact medieval core dominated by a hilltop castle it's also one of the most attractive small towns in the country.
The old town is situated on the left bank of the River Drava. Start and finish of the half marathon is just across the river at Terme Ptuj, a thermal spa and recreational centre.
The route is flat and fast and travels along both banks of the Drava.
At first, participants run a loop of approximately 5.5 kilometres, followed by 10 kilometres along an out-and-back section, and finally another 5.5k-loop.
The event also includes a popular 6k race and several children's competitions.
After the races, all participants get a warm meal and free entry to the outdoor pools of the spa.
The half marathon winners in 2009 were David Valenti (1:17:15) and Špela Kržan (1:29:38).
