Destination

Behind the Lajnar Guesthouse

Turn-by-turn directions

The course is run in an anti-clockwise direction. Bear right and descend gently through the forest. Soon you will come to a large open area where there is a 200 m warm-up lap. Short ascents and descents continue. There is running in both directions along part of the track, so care is needed. Below the power line, you climb to a viewing plateau where the view of the Julian Alps with Triglav is breathtaking. There is a short descent to the starting point.
