Host of the 2016 WMRA World Long Distance Mountain Running Championships.

Across from the Bohinj hills there is the Baška grapa valley, where lies a small village Podbrdo. In this very village the first mountain run in Slovenia took place in 1970.

The surrounding Alpine mountains and the Škofja Loka hills make an excellent combination of high mountain trails and hilly fields which provide for the most attractive tracks. The effort on the trail is outweighed by the friendliness of the locals, who have lived in these remote valleys and hills for centuries.

This is a festival which raises hope for the demographically endangered areas and encourages people to persist on their land. And this hope is brought by you, the runners, who keep returning to these valleys to discover the most demanding and unspoiled trails in Slovenia.

Since 2002 we prepare the hardest races:
9. Ultra-Trail® Pušeljc – UTP100+km / D+- 6.600m
UTP70+km / D+- 4.000m
22. Gorski Maraton 4 Občin – GM4O 42km / D+- 3.100m
3. GM Trail 25+km / D+-1700 m
1. Rapalski trail 10+km / D+-600m
