15 km

The start will be at the beautiful Kočevje Lake, where the entire event Kočevje Outdoor Festival will take place. The route we put together for you is circular and shows you the beautiful green landscape of the destination Kočevsko, which is known mainly for its mysterious forest. This is a wild but at the same time very friendly destination, which will surely mesmerise you.

The beginning and end of the race is the same as for our shortest distance, and in between the 15-kilometer distance takes you deeper into the vastness of Kočevje’s forests. The route winds between mighty trees, each with its own story to tell. Below the village of Onek, the 15 km route joins runners from longer distances and together you descend along the common path towards the finish line and your long-awaited refreshment in the lake.

The 15 km route is designed especially for regular or occasional runners, who are looking for beautiful, but at the same time not too demanding running terrain.

A few short climbs, forest paths, meadow paths and not too demanding terrain may just be the right combination for your trail running adventure!

We promise that Kočevsko will more than enchant you and that you’ll be planning your return to these beautiful trails right after your race!

Come and discover this wild but extremely friendly destination!
