42. Šmarna gora run 2021
IMPRESSIONS OF COMPETITORS AND JOURNALISTS
Congratulations to all the competitors and also to the fans for helping us to run this year’s Run to Šmarna gora. Despite the missing international team, the covid situation and the canceled Šmarna gora Record, we have shown that the traditional Šmarna gora Run is in our hearts, that we love mountain running and we are proud of our Šmarna gora, which allows us to move in quality every day. and a healthy environment. See you next year!
cancellation of the event
Rekord Šmarna gora race 2021 CANCELED!
As you know, the organizers of Šmarna gora run and Rekord have planned this year’s events for October 1st and 2nd.
The current restrictions make it very difficult for us to hold events in the form we were used to, especially the controversial events at the top of Šmarna gora, where active and passive participants of the sports event mix with other visitors to Šmarna gora. So we decided to hold the RUN TO ŠMARNA GORA event, but in a much changed form. We will omit all events related to the top of Šmarna gora.
With Record, the matter is different – there can be no record without the inclusion of the top, so we are canceling this year’s record. Applicants will, of course, receive a refund of the entry fee.
The rich history of runs to Šmarna gora is presented
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.
