Juliana Stage Run

25. – 30. 4. 2020


Juliana Stage Run

Juliana Stage Run (JSR) – 254 km (7.370 m ↑ / 8.108 m ↓), competitive, in stages along Juliana Trail and Alpe Adria Trail.

The route follows JULIANA TRAIL from Kranjska Gora to Bovec, where it turns to ALPE ADRIA TRAIL. The route will not be specially marked since the markings have already been taken care of; however, each participant will have a GPX track. The beginning and end of each stage is in an urban environment – Kranjska Gora, Šobec / Bled, Bohinjska Bistrica, Tolmin, Bovec, Kranjska Gora.

After a joint start at the accommodation center (also possible chronometer start with a few minutes delay) the participants make their own progress (walking and / or running) along the route. The participants are self-sufficient and environmentally conscious so that no trace will be left behind. The Booking Center Slovenia (of Juliana Trail and Alpe Adria Trail Slovenia) will provide accommodation for participants and accompanying teams in existing accommodation of the completed daily route. Each participant will have a GPS tracker so that security will be provided. As you progress, you will be able to replenish supplies (1 – 3 refreshments per stage), and equipment transfer will be provided. Arrival at the destination is individual or in a small group of 2 – 3, according to their progression skills. 

The event is in a boutique style, with 50 participants per stage. Priority will be given to participants who will attend all stages or will participate in several stages.
