WMRA Mountain Running World Cup resumes in Kamnik, for the third stage 2015. - 25 July 2015 Print
2015grintovecleaflet.jpgAfter the European and NACAC Mountain Running Championships, more than 200 runners from 15 countries have entered the 17th edition of “The Grintovec Mountain running race”, the third stage of WMRA 2015 Mountain Running World Cup, that will be held on Sunday 26th July in Kamnik, Slovenia.
The course is a real mountain course, taking the normal trail from the Kamniska Valley (602m) to the Grintovec summit (2.558m).
Almost 2000m elevation gain on less than 10km; normal hikers need 6 hours to reach the summit and another six to go back.
Course record holders are Jonathan Wyatt (NZL) and Anna Pichrtova (CZE) with 1:15:43 and 1:31:50 (both in 2006) and it seems that those records will last for a long time.
