Some sections are on trails (this is between Mozirje and Nazarje).


Held every year on the first Saturday in September, this popular running event in Slovenia offers a number of scenic races, from 17 to 75 kilometres long.

The 75km ultra marathon travels from the town of Celje along the beautiful Upper Savinja Valley into the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. The shorter races start en route.

All races finish in Logarska dolina, a 7km-long picture-postcard glacial valley.

The route is undulating and runs upstream beside the River Savinja. It features an elevation gain of approximately 550 metres over the full 75 kilometres.

Some sections are on dirt roads and trails. The roads are not closed to traffic.

In 2009, the event had overall 730 finishers from 7 countries. The ultra marathon winners were Danny Thewes (5:39:33) and Bärbel Lemme (6:51:30), both of Germany.
