We will inform you about the exact pick-up points and the time of organized bus transport from Maribor to Lovrenc na Pohorju in time. The buses will drop you off in the center of Lovrenc na Pohorju, where the start will also take place. There will be toilets, changing rooms, a buffet with coffee, tea, water and other beverages at the meeting point. There will also be an INFO stand where you can hand in your bags, which will be delivered to the finish line in Maribor. The start time is scheduled at 10:00 a.m., but minor time differences are possible due to transportation and the arrival of runners from other places. You will be informed in time about the official start time. Immediately after the start, a good kilometer of asphalt road with a slight downward slope awaits you, which will lead you to the bridge over the Radoljna River. Immediately after crossing the river, the first and only long slope awaits you, which is initially taken along a gravel road. From there, it soon branches off to the mountain trail Lovrenc na Pohorju - Rothoba - Koča na Klopnem vrhu, managed by PD Lovrenc na Pohorje. The length of the route to the first water station is 7.8 km, and you will climb 943 meters of altitude. You will reach the next station - Koča Šumik, after firstly running mainly on soft, moss-covered and sometimes swampy ground, followed by a descent on a macadam path, which is combined with a forest path. In this part, you must strictly follow the markings located on the forest path. The latter runs almost parallel to the macadam path. For violation of this rule, the race director will assign you a time penalty in accordance with the rules of the competition. The path from Koča na Klopnem vrhu to Koča Šumik is a bit longer than 4 kilometers. After visiting the second water station, you will go down the macadam path for a good kilometer to Jelenska Peč and join the Lobnica - Bajgot mountain path, which is managed by the Mountain association Ruše. In this section we will be measuring your time for the fastest climb in the length of next 2 km, that will take you through technically very demanding terrain, where steel cables are installed at some points and a rise of 214 m. Our sponsor Red Bull Slovenia will reward the fastest competitors on this section that is located in the
Šumik primeval forest by the Lobnica river and will take you past two waterfalls - Mali and Veliki Šumik. The destination of this section will be at Bajgot at an altitude of 1050 m above sea level, where there will also be a third station with water. From Bajgot, you will ascend to the highest peak of the eastern part of Pohorje - Žigartov vrh (1347 m), and from there you will descend slightly and consistently to the next point - Areh. At Ruška koča there will be a fourth station with water and a time stop. You must leave this point within the time limit of four hours after the start (if the run start is at 10:00, you must leave the station no later than 1:59 p.m.). At Areh, we will stock you with salt tablets and magnesium. Medical staff will also be available to treat your possible wounds, examine your psychophysical condition, etc. The length between Bajgot and Areh is just over 7 kilometers, and you will continue one kilometer less to the next water station, Mariborska Koča, where there is also a monument to the founding father of SPP - Ivan Šumljak. For the last few hundred meters towards the cottage, you will be running on an asphalt road, so keep to the left edge of the road. From Mariborska koča, the route will take you to the lookout tower - Razglednik, and from there, after a wonderful descent along Rozka's learning path, you will reach the church of St. Bolfenko at the upper station of the cable car, where there will be the sixth water station. What follows is a steep descent along the undulating and root-strewn Šumljakova path to Radvanje, where the start of the Slovenian mountain trail is located. At the foot of Pohorje, the last station with water will be waiting for you, and from there you will only have to run another 3 kilometers on a rugged forest path. In this part, you will have to be very careful about your orientation, as the path is poorly marked and interspersed with a multitude of other paths. That is why we will provide additional signage along the route on this section.
