Registered in IAAF calendar, the Ljubljana Marathon, organized at the end of October, is the biggest running event in Slovenia.

After two decades, there are more than 20,000 participants every year from different countries around the world. For those who don’t want to run the whole marathon, options include competing in a half-marathon, a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) recreational run or a 3.5 kilometer (2 miles) FUN RUN with or without a costume.
