4th Race of the 'Voice of Gorenjska' 2010
Preddvor (Slovenia), Sunday 26 September 2010
The Tek Gorenjskega glasa offers an 11k multi-terrain race through pretty countryside.
The final race of the Gorenjski pokal, a series of ten running events in Slovenia's alpine Gorenjska region, is held on a rural course at the foot of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
Competitors run 11km on mixed terrain, mostly on dirt roads and trails. Approximately 4km of the course are run on asphalt roads.
The route goes through fields, woods, villages and along the fast-flowing River Kokra. The first half of the course is slightly downhill, the second half uphill.
The start and the finish are at the primary school of the village of Preddvor.
Located around 33km to the north of Slovenia's capital Ljubljana, Preddvor is a popular day-tripping destination for the city folk as there's a lovely little lake (Jezero Črnava) with a castle, a hotel and a café.
In 2009, the winners were Peter Letnar (38:04) and Valerija Mrak (42:01).
