Ljubljana Marathon to Be Held on 29 October

Participants will run through the central streets of the capital. Registration for one of the largest sports events in Slovenia will last until 30 September. Participation fee is 40 euros.

Both the marathon (42,195 metres) and the semi-marathon (21,098 metres) will start at 10:30 a.m. and finish at 3:30 p.m.

Three finalists in each category will receive cash prizes and medals indicating the time spent on the marathon.

The Slovenian marathon is held since 1996. Initially, only local runners took part in it, but soon the marathon developed into an international high-class competition. Thus, in 2014, more than 22,000 runners from 40 countries took part in the marathon.

The competition is regulated by the Slovenian State Research Agency according to the rules of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
