In Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, the last weekend in October has traditionally been booked for runners. The streets of the city will be full of competitors at the 21st Ljubljana Marathon. The organisers are expecting a record number of participants and have already recorded a 14.4% increase in registrations compared to last year. You still have time to register and run together with more than 28,000 runners, who claim that the athmosphere in Ljubljana is unbeatable. 

The Ljubljana Marathon is a major celebration of running in green, active and healthy Slovenia. It is held in the streets of Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, with the starting line in Slovenska cesta street, famous for being transforemed into pedestrian zone and closed to traffic, and the finishing line in Kongresni trg square, one of the most beautiful Ljubljana squares. 

A total of 28,400 runners are expected to attend the two-day running event, which starts on 29th October with a run for children. At the main event on Sunday, 30th October, more than 18,800 runners are registered to run 10km, the half marathon (21km) or the full marathon (42km). Special attention will be given to six runners, who have run the full 42 kilometres at all 20 Ljubljana Marathons.

Join the runners at Slovenia`s largest running event on the last weekend in October.
