ITRA/UTMB POINTS: 5 WSER100 – 2022

The start is in the center of Ajdovščina (106 m). Runners will first ascend to Kovk (961 m), from there along the edge of the Mountain to the highest point of the UTVV – Mali Golak (1495 m). The route continues past the hut on Čaven (1242 m), the hut on Mala Gora and descends across the Kucelj (1237 m) into the valley. It follows the beautiful views in the wine-growing places on the southern slopes of the Vipava Valley: Preserje – Sveti Martin – Erzelj – Goče to Socerb at the southern end of the valley. From Podnanos, the route ascends to the top of the Nanos plateau – Pleša (1262 m). From there, through the heart of Nanos, it descends into the valley to the finish line – in the center of Vipava. CENTURION UTVV100 is an ITRA / UTMB qualifying match for 2021. CENTURION UTVV100 is a Western States 100 qualifying match for 2021 (all of which finish in a time limit of 25h). The 106 km trail running test is set in the valley, where in 394 one of the most important battles of the late Roman period took place, the Battle of the Cold River or the Battle of Frigid. The Battle of Frigid, also called the Battle of the River Frigid, took place between 5 and 6 September 394 between the army of the Eastern Emperor Theodosius I and the army of the Western Roman ruler Eugene. With Theodosius’ victory, the Roman Empire was united under one emperor for the last time in history. The victory of Theodosius also brought about the final religious domination of Christianity in Europe. But enough about history, we’d rather go for a run in nature, and we’ll make sure you learn a lot more about the stories from this famous battle … … and we’ll make sure you become a proud Roman Centurion after 106 km.

TESTIMONIALS

Super well organized! Lots of restore points, beautiful landscapes. The 106km race goes through mountains, valleys, wine yards, on single tracks, and just a minimum part of tarmac, great volunteers cheering you up calling your name! Do it!!

Centurion, 100km (2019 Winner)

A couple of days ago, 100km was just a number in my head… Thanks to YOU, dear volunteers and organizers, it is now the most testing activity I’ve done in my life. You were so friendly, kind and helpful along the course. Words are powerless to express my gratitude. Perfect marking, amazing nature, technical race (at least for me). Come on people, try it!
