Special warnings and conditions A protective helmet is mandatory - drive according to road and traffic regulations. On the back of the start number is a form with vital personal and contact information in case of a possible accident or injury. Please enter the information, as it will greatly facilitate the work of the rescue service at the marathon (in the unlikely event of an accident). A marathon participant is anyone who registers with the organizer, pays the entry fee and submits a completed application form. By registering and picking up the start number, the participants of the marathon confirm that they are familiar with the conditions of the tender and agree with them. Marathon participants start at 09:00 and ride according to their fitness level; the marathon ends at 5:00 p.m. Groups of participants who are not more than 60 minutes behind the leading group will be protected by a mobile road block. A participant who is overtaken by a vehicle with the sign "end of mobile traffic jam" is considered a normal road user who must drive on the right side and take into account the vehicles of other road users. Marathon participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by their parents or an organized group.
DOPING CONTROL: PIRAMIDA office building, 13th floor
The organizer provides all participants of the marathon: a snack and a drink at the finish line, a medal and refreshments at several refreshment stations that will be placed along the course. All marathon participants drive at their own risk; the organizer is not responsible for possible damage to materials and people. Only riders with classic road bikes will be considered in the results! Passing through the control stations (carpets) is mandatory, otherwise your result will not be recognized. Please respect nature and do not throw energy bars and drink wrappers on the road!
Important The organizer guarantees all participants who registered on time a gift at the end of the marathon. Registered on time means that the registration is paid no later than 5 days before the marathon! In addition, food and drinks will be available to all participants at refreshment stations along the route, as well as a medal and lunch at the finish line. If the number of participants is greater than expected and there are a large number of applicants in the last five days, those who have applied in time will have priority for the starter packages. We do not provide start packages to registrations and picking up start numbers on the start day. At the finish line, you will receive a medal along with a lunch voucher and a gift bag. If the number of medals is less than the number of performers, we order them additionally. Medals are subsequently available to participants of the event at the premises of KD Rog at the address Vikrče 3, 1000 Ljubljana (Under Šmarno goro).

MARATHON FRANJA BTC CITY 156KM - Route description
The course runs from the start in BTC City left onto Šmartinska cesta, turns left onto Kajuhova, continues along Kajuhova, Litijska and Poljanska cesta, turns left onto Roška and continues to Karlovška most, where it turns right onto Karlovška, continues along Zoisova, Aškerčeva and further along Trieste.
The route continues along the Tržaška road across Brezovica to Vrhnika, further over the Vrhnika slope (4.6 km ascent, average gradient 4.1 %, maximum gradient 7 %) to Logatac and Kalce, where we turn right towards Godovič. From Godovič we descend towards Idrija and Želin (dangerous descent). Due to the dangerous descent, road G101 between Godovič and Idrija will be closed to all traffic between 09:40 and 13:05.
In Želin, turn right onto the road towards Cerkne, where there is a snack bar on the main square. The main climb of the marathon follows - the climb to Kladje (7 km, average gradient 6.3 %, maximum gradient 10 %). The next refreshment stop is at Kladje. The path then descends to Trebia. The descent is dangerous because of the bad road. The road from Cerkne via Kladje to Trebija will be closed to all traffic from 9:40 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for safety reasons.
In Trebije, turn left towards Gorenja vas. The next refreshment station is in front of the municipal building in Gorenja vas. We continue towards Škofja Loka. At the entrance to Škofja Loka, there is a dangerous right turn and immediately after, a left turn. Although the rangers will warn cyclists of the dangers on the sections, ride carefully. There is a refreshment station at the top of the slope in Škofja Loka.
At the exit from Škofja Loka, turn right onto road 314 towards Jeprca and Vodice. In Vodice turn right towards Skaručna, in Povodje turn left towards Gameljne (ATTENTION 500m macadam road) and we continue through free Črnučem to Dunajska, where we turn right towards the center. We continue along Dunajska to the intersection with Dimičeva, where we turn left and continue to Kranjčeva cesta. We continue along Kranjčeva street to the Žale roundabout, and from there along Pokopališka cesta to Šmartinska cesta, where the BTC City marathon ends.
In addition, we ask the participants to be careful when driving through Ljubljana, where crowds can be expected due to the large number of cyclists.
