The course is a real mountain course, taking the normal trail from the Kamniska Valley (602m) to the Grintovec summit (2554m).
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 and Anna Pichrtova (1:15:43 and 1:31:50, both in 2006) and it seems that those records will last for a long time.
