Here, the line turns towards Gradišče nad Vipavo, and then past the Cultural Center, descends back towards the center of Vipava. Here, a refreshment station awaits you at km 5, then continue along the old part of Vipava, across the beautiful Vipava bridges at the source of Vipava, towards the Janko Premrla Vojko barracks. From there across the field to the idyllic Zemono hill, and then downhill to the “battlefield” in front of Vrhpolje, where, according to historical accounts, the Battle of Frigidus in 394 took place, between the Eastern and Western Roman emperors.

Through the field you will reach Vrhpolje village and refreshment stations at 9 km. From here follows a moderate ascent into the slope of Nanos. Soon you will see the beautiful scenery, Stari Grad (old castle) above Vipava, where you will join the main route, along which all the big races take place and, together with other competitors, will be looking forward to your destination in Vipava.

See you soon!
