The Legionar – UTVV 30 km course runs from the center of Ajdovščina, past the spring of the Hubelj River in a steep ascent to the top of Podrta Gora (825 m), where the route joins the longest distances and offers runners breathtaking views of the Vipava Valley in the 15-kilometer ridge of Angelska Gora. At Mala Gora, the Legionar route turns towards the valley and reaches Lokavec in a 1,000-meter descent. From here it continues for another 5 flat kilometers along paved paths beside the Lokavšček stream.
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.

No doubt that Vipava Ultra was an amazing race on the paper and that was matched 100% by reality! With a group of 8 we travelled from Switzerland and in 2019 we will be back with a larger group! Our compliments to Bostian (race director) and its team! A special thanks to Slovenian People for caring so much about their beautiful Homeland! Thanks to all supporters along the race track! Nothing to complain about… a race that will grow up very fast and happy to have it s partner event! GREAT JOB. Hvala. Aaron Rezzonico, Organizer of Scenic Trail Switzerland.
What a great race!
My girlfriend and I ran the 25K and had a wonderful time. The course is challenging but very well marked and offers great views. There are plenty of aid stations with a good variety of drinks and snacks.
To top it all off, we got a bottle of wine and a t-shirt when we picked up our race packets.
I would definitely run this race again.
Thank you for this amazing event; the organisation was excellent and the staff was very friendly and professional. I loved my experience.
You guys rock!!!
