I FEEL SLOVENIA ULTRA TRAIL JA

A true trail running challenge from Soča valley, across Bled to Kranjska Gora

I FEEL SLOVENIA ULTRA TRAIL JULIAN ALPS (UTJA)

Queen stage, taking you around Julian Alps, is a true challenge for all ultra-trail lovers. 

You start in historic Kobarid, right in the stunning Soča Valley. From then you continue towards Tolmin, where the route gets even more interesting – taking you above Podbrdo and Črna prst towards Soriška planina.

Your breath will be taken away many times along the way, as you’ll be able to see Slovenia’s highest mountain Triglav for most of the way. Your route continues across the ridge towards Ratitovec, from which you descend towards Jelovica and continue towards Babji zob. This is where you’ll join ways with 100 km runners and continue towards Bled.

From there the route takes you towards Žirovnica, right under stunning Karawanks peaks. This is where your climb towards the highest peak Stol begins. Don’t forget to take some pictures from the highest point of your race, because it’ll offer breath-taking views of Julian Alps.

Your next stop from Stol is going across the ridge, right to Golica and Dovška baba. From there you have a great downhill in store, taking you straight to Mojstrana. A flat section follows next, but you still have some climbing to do.

You’ll start climbing in Gozd Martuljek and go towards Srednji vrh, which is only a downhill away from your finish in Kranjska Gora.
