An unforgettable running experience with beautiful views: Soča Outdoor Festival
The route of the Continental Trail 10km is truly magical. It contains two shorter climbs, while we spared you the climb to Tolminski Castle. The route will take place along the foothills and lead you to the entrance to Tolminska Korita, where a refreshing finish will await you. If you get hot on the way, you can treat yourself to refreshment by wading through Tolminka. Trust us, it's worth it!
For your convenience, we have prepared several registration options. You can register for the run electronically or visit the registration office on the day of the event. However, due to the great interest, we recommend electronic registration, as the number of places is limited to 600 participants per individual discipline. The application fee depends on the date of application, so secure your place as soon as possible.
We also offer you the option of group registration. If you are a group of five or more competitors, you will receive a 15% discount on the registration fee. This is a great opportunity to experience the competitive spirit with friends or colleagues and enjoy an unforgettable running event together.
Healthy competition will be established among the competitors, so we have prepared different categories according to age.

Thus, the competitors will be divided by age group: men up to 30 years old, men up to 40 years old, men up to 50 years old, men up to 60 years old, men over 60 years old, women up to 30 years old, women up to 40 years old, women up to 50 years old, women up to 60 years old and women over 60 years old. In each category, a minimum of 10 competitors must be registered to be considered as an independent category.
The event will take place between 30 June and 2 July 2023, with runners able to pick up bib numbers and register on Friday 30 June between 5pm and 9pm and Saturday 1 July between 8am and 9.30am. The match will officially start at 10:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m., when the results will be announced and the prizes will be awarded. The joy and atmosphere at the award ceremony is one of the most anticipated moments of the event.
All competitors must follow certain safety rules and equipment. Mandatory equipment includes a starting number, suitable running shoes, your own drink pot, mobile phone and hooded jacket.
