Ultra Trail Vipava Valley

7 – 9 May 2021

 

Ultra Trail Vipava Valley connects the Vipava Valley for the sixth year in a row. In addition to the longest distance Enperor – 160km, runners can also compete in Centurion – 100km, Gladiator – 50km, Legionar – 30km and Asterix – 13km.

The shortest distance (Asterix) is this year’s novelty, designed for every recreational runner out there.
The event is one of the largest in the region and attracts more than 1,000 runners from 30 countries each year.

As the names of the individual races indicate, the red thread of the event is the memory of the famous Roman battle of 394 in the field below Vrhpolje.
