The project is part of promotional activities for the Tour of Slovenia Race, broadcast by the European and global television sport network Eurosport.
The 25th edition of the Tour of Slovenia race will take place 13-17 June 2018. For the second time in a row, it will be broadcast by the global television sport network Eurosport. Last year, it reached 243 million viewers worldwide, among them over 113 million cycling enthusiasts. The sustainably-themed slogan “Fight for Green” remains at the forefront also this year and directly connects the cyclists’ competition for the winner’s green jersey and the commitment of Slovenia and Slovenian tourism to sustainability.
For all those, who are not afraid to push their limits, the first IRONMAN event in Slovenia will take place on 23 September in the region of Slovenian Istria.

The I FEEL SLOVENIA IRONMAN 70.3 Slovenian Istria triathlon will lead through old towns, picturesque villages and nature with magnificent views. Four beautiful coastal cities, Koper, Izola, Piran and Ankaran, will host athletes and their supporters, offering a distinct Mediterranean experience each with their own unique attractions and charms.
