Dukat Fit 45 km Route description

Start and finish:  Festival venue at Sotočje

The longest of  Soča Outdoor Festival trails has undergone significant changes for the 2018 edition.The route now starts as other trails do, namely at the main festival venue in Tolmin, and ends with the crossing of the Tolminka river as well.

Further improvements are to be made in 2019 in order to increase safety and running pleasure. More information will be available in the spring when all tests will be performed. The description bellow is temporarily and incomplete.

It follows Soča river upwards to the Volčanski bridge, continues over Soča river and  among the WWI  bunkers to the top of the hill Mengore, where it turns back to the Volčanski bridge which is reached by another path.  The route continues  towards Kamp Gabrje where it turns and steeply ascends towards Tolmin Castle. From the top of the castle hill the trail leads to the village Zatolmin and to the entrance to the Tolmin Gorges. From there a completely new part of the trail routes stretches to the Church of Holly Spirit in Javorca, continuing to the spring of Tolminka River, Prode mountain pasture and to the magical village Čadrg. After that the route turns downhill again to Tolmin Gorges to reach the most attractive, wild and pretty cool leg at the confluence of  Zadlaščica and Tolminka rivers, just to make another uphill leg to the village Žabče. From Žabče the trail goes directly to the confluence of Soča and Tolminka rivers. The last obstacle to overcome is Tolminka river which runners have to cross right before the finish line.
