PATH DESCRIPTION

CLICK FOR DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The Asterix – UTVV 15 km route runs from Ajdovščina towards the village of Plače and Ustje, where the river Vipava is crossed. The route then runs uphill through the village of Tevče and continues towards picturesque village of Planina, where joined to the longest distances, Emperor and Centurion passes St.Mary church and crosses the river  Vipava via the Napoleon bridge in the village of Dolenje. The route ends in Ajdovščina. An easy, playful distance of less than 300 VM, suitable for all beginners in trail running.

The UTVV ultramarathon challenge is set in the valley where one of the most important battles of the late Roman period, The Battle of the Frigidus, also called the Battle of the Frigid River, took place in 394. The battle was fought between 5 and 6 September 394 between the army of the Eastern Emperor Theodosius I and the army of the Western Roman ruler Eugenius. With Theodosius’ victory, the Roman Empire was united under one emperor for the last time in history. Also, the victory of Theodosius brought the final religious dominance of Christianity in Europe.
