Triglav Trail Run is the trail running race around Mount Triglav (2864m) – a massive of pure rock! It’s one of the most picturesque mountain and trail runs that takes place in the area. Steep mountain walls, narrow hiking trails, comfortable mule tracks, which were dug into the upright slopes, open ridges and valleys with high alpine lakes give the run a very special charm. And also, it offers the greatest degree of complexity and responsibility! This is the only trail running event that takes place in the central area of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park.
The Julian Alps are a unique mountain range, where in the central area – the highest and most diverse part – the Triglav National Park is located. Here, nature is especially beautiful, hard to access and unique. The very heart of the park is Mount Triglav, which with its 2864 meters is considered the highest mountain of the Julian Alps.
The Julian Alps cover an estimated 4400 km2. They are divided into the Eastern and Western Julian Alps. There are many peaks in the Eastern Julian Alps, which are over 2000 m high, and they are mainly parts of ridges. The most prominent peaks are well visible due to their height and size. The king of this mountain range is Mt Triglav, the symbol of the Slovenian nation.
Mojstrana village, with Slovenian Alpine Museum, is the start and finish line of the Triglav Trail Festival. Runners will have four courses to choose from: longer, 88.5 kilometres and three shorter, 44 kilometres, 26 kilometres and 15 kilometres.

Slovenian Alpine Museum run is a shorter run and suitable for any runner. Courses mainly run on walking paths with some forest trails on the way.
