28th June 2024 at 19.00 – Tolmin, Slovenia

The route from Volč to Kolovrat is not truly vertical, as the name of this increasingly popular running category suggests. But even if you don’t know the Pythagorean theorem, it should be clear to you that 1,000 vertical metres over a distance of five kilometres is one hell of a steep climb. Two more encouraging facts: the trail is mostly in the shade of a forest, and at the top you’ll find a meadow with a view of the mighty Krn on one side and the Adriatic Sea on the other. Lie down and breathe, you’ve earned it.
