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 10:40 a.m. 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 with: a snack and a drink at the finish line, a medal and refreshments at several refreshment stations that will be placed along the route. 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 provides a gift to all participants who register on time. 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 guarantee a gift for registering and collecting start numbers on the start day. At the finish line, you will receive a medal along with a lunch voucher and a gift! 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).

TRIGLAV MALI MARATHON FRANJA BTC CITY 97 KM - DESCRIPTION OF THE ROUTE

The route and timetable of the small Franja marathon is designed to follow the same route as the original Franja Marathon. Both start in BTC City (Ljubljana); the route is the same as the first 7 kilometers, to the Long Bridge. There, Mala Franja branches off and continues through Kozarje. The route continues through Dobrova and Horjul to Vrzdenc, where the 8-kilometer ascent begins with an average gradient of 5%, the maximum gradient being 9 %. The route then leads through Lučine to the village of Gorenje, where it joins Velika Franji again and follows the same timetable and route to the destination in BTC City.

DANGEROUS SECTIONS:
    • Dangerous entrance to Škofja Loka with a sharp left and then right turn (at kilometer 61).
    • Dangerous descent towards Črnuče

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.

The following roads will be closed to all traffic during the marathon:

    • The road between Vrzdenec and Gorenja village (between the 27th and 45th kilometers) between 10:50 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
    • Road between Gameljna and BTC City, destination (between kilometer 146 and 156) between 12:00 and 17:00.
