Basic information

34 km / 1700 D + (GO3V)

The run is intended for experienced trail runners and will take you over three Gorizia peaks (Škabriel, Sveta Gora and Sabotin) in a very special way. We offer you beautiful paths, crossing the Soča by raft and running over the longest footbridge in Slovenia and overcoming a 280-meter-long cavern from the First World War. This is more than enough that as an experienced trail runner, you simply have to be in the race.

In case of restrictions by NIJZ  Covid-19, we reserve the right to change the program, venue and implementation of the entire event.

You will be informed about all the changes in a timely manner on our website news and on social media.

Route

34 km / 1700 D + (GO3V)

The route runs over three peaks above Nova Gorica - Škabrijela, Sveta Gora and Sabotina.

It starts at the kayak center in Solkan. From here you continue along the footpath along the Soča under the railway bridge, followed by an asphalt ascent to Solkan. Through the center of Solkan, the signs lead past the church and under the Solkan bypass towards Škabrijel, where the first refreshment stand awaits under Škabriel (the drinking fountain). We continue on the right and after 1 km, we start the ascent along the downhill cycling route to Škabrijel (646 v.m).

We continue along the ridge of Škabrijel. Follow the descent to the road Nova Gorica - Lokve (Prevala) and after 300 meters the path at the inn Panorama (refreshment room) crosses the road to the right for Sveta gora. After 300 meters of asphalt path, turn onto the mountain / bike path towards the cavern, where you put on your headlamp and carefully continue through the 280-meter-long cavern from the First World War (a special feature of our race). Follow the ascent along the mountain path on the north side to the statue of Sv. Francis and continue along the ridge to the basilica on Sveta Gora (refreshment room).

We continue past the basilica and descend the stairs to the macadam parking lot. From there we continue downhill along a wide macadam road in the direction of Preški vrh, where the GO3V and GOULTRA routes separate.

After about 400 meters of descent, turn sharp left onto a narrow path, from where you continue along the path to the water source. A few meters after the spring, we descend from the path to the right and continue to the Primula restaurant and join the downhill bike path behind it.

We descend to the Žogica restaurant and continue to the Solkan bridge, where we descend to the right under the stone railway bridge and continue towards the Kayak center (refreshment room).

At the refreshment stand, we board a raft to cross the Soča (a special feature of our race). After a short ascent we come to a bicycle road and after 2 kilometers we turn left onto a marked path that leads to Sabotin. After less than a kilometer of climbing, turn left to Sv. Valentina (refreshments).

We continue along the ridge to the top of Sabotin (609 m above sea level), from where a descent follows, which takes us back to the cycling road via Italy, from where we turn right onto a new footbridge across the Soča.

From here we run right to the finish in the Kayak center.

* More demanding sections are rocky (Sabotin), slippery (Sveta Gora cavern, Sabotin), footbridge crossing
