The Ljubljana Marathon is a mammoth celebration of running participated by nearly 18,000 runners from 35 countries.
Ljubljana Marathon is getting more popular every year and the number of participants is on the increase. Also this year, competitors will be running a classical marathon (42 km), a half marathon (21 km) or various shorter recreational races. All the races will be held within the wider city centre area.
On the last Sunday in October, when the streets of Ljubljana and its surrounding areas are flooded with runners, the patter of running feet and the sound of deep breathing replace the hum of traffic noise and the smell of exhaust gasses.
Participants include anyone from world-class marathoners to recreational runners, including pre-schoolers, primary school pupils, students and seniors. The youngest participant ever was no more than a year old and the oldest veteran over eighty years old.
