The organizers of the Šmarna gora run in cooperation with the Šmarna gora Mountaineering Association, set up a monument at the top of the most visited mountain in Slovenia, with which we wanted to present the rich history of more or less cross-country sports events connected with our Šmarna gora.
A free-standing panel measuring 2m x 1.3m is placed at the place where the Rekord finish and, since last year, also Run, have been set. It consists of two substantively separate halves.
The second panel measuring 1.5 x 1.5 m is intended primarily for connoisseurs of Running and Record. It is placed in the finish line, which has had a permanent place in the immediate vicinity of the finish line since last autumn. In pictures and words, it represents the 42-year history of Running and the 26-year history of Record.
