Important information about all JATrail routes

Important information about BIB pick-up and routes

Dear runners!

There are just a few days left until Julian Alps Trail Run 2021, when we’ll proudly welcome you in the beautiful Kranjska Gora and its surroundings, and you’ll be able to tackle all your trail running goals.

We have gathered all the important information for the distance you have registered for. Keep in mind that we will send a race guide by the end of this week or the beginning of next week as well, in which you will find additional information.

Please note that changes to distances and names are no longer possible.

IMPORTANT! Unfortunately we were forced to change the Sky Race route in the final days before the race, as some land owners pulled back their already confirmed permissions to hold the race on their property. We tried hard to find the right solution for this and we believe, you’ll be equally as amazed by the new route, which has the same distance and elevation gain. It will offer stunning views and incredible single trails on the Karawanks ridge. We’ll e-mail you the final route and gpx in the following days and you’ll also be able to find it on our website. The Ultra Sky Trail was also (only partially) changed due to this same reason.
