A marathon run can be a battle that is full of suffering. A marathon can also be a song that is full of harmony, a steady blend of steps, breaths and inspiration. I invite you to the Blitz Bovec marathon, to create a new song together.

For a long time, long distance running was not considered appropriate for women. We were even banned from participating in marathons. In Bovec, however, they have accepted us without reservation. That is why I am grateful to return there to confirm that they were right that they also want to run me a long way, if it is along the turquoise-blue Soča, then I prefer it.

I got to know Bovec and the Soča Valley in more detail not sooner than last year - my first season among professionals. The trainings I did through Vršič through the Trenta valley and the ascent to the Mangart saddle were unique and unforgettable. I recommend running through unspoiled nature through the hidden corners of Bovec with a historical touch to all who enjoy good company.
As a marathon runner, I always like to return to Bovec. I ran in Bovec when this running event was organized together with Radenci and Kranj as part of the Three hearts marathons. This is one of the most beautiful and picturesque half marathons I have ever run. I warmly recommend it to all lovers of running in pure nature.
