If you are looking for new challenges and the classic format of running competitions no longer satisfies you, we offer you a completely new experience where you will depend solely on yourself.

It is the first self-sufficient trail race in Slovenia, which will not have signs and where there will be no classic refreshment and transit stations. You will have to follow Knafelc blazes and GPX tracks on your watch or smartphone.

We offer you a unique fusion of nature and discovery of hidden corners of Pohorje, where your ingenuity, strength, endurance and determination will come to the fore.


You will find water along the way, as Pohorje is full of natural springs, and there are also many mountain huts along the route. You will have to bring your own food (minimum 1,000 KCAL) in your backpack, and we will stock you with salt tablets, magnesium, calcium, snacks, energy surprise and good mood after finishing this challenge.

VOLVEL will unite only 100 trail runners, so don't wait with registration.
