Alpe Marathon

The most beautiful and difficult one. A description of the marathon by the cyclists themselves.

The Alps

The picturesque trail of the Alpe Marathon leads through the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, through passes, and along rivers that once separated people and were boundaries between different languages, cultures, and nationalities.

On the first Sunday of July, Kamnik hosts the start and finish of the Alpe Scott Marathon, one of the most difficult and beautiful marathons in Slovenia. For the 12th year in a row, the marathon will take the participants around the picturesque Kamnik-Savinja Alps, across three mountain passes - Jezerski vrh (1280 m), the Pavlič Saddle (1400 m) and Črnivec (900 m), along four mountain rivers and through 11 municipalities in Slovenia and in Carinthia in Austria. Cyclists will set off on a 130-kilometre route and will have to overcome 2000 metres in altitude in the beautiful natural scenery of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. The picturesque landscape of the cycling marathon also raises awareness on the respect of the environment among cyclists.


The record of the 130-kilometre route with 3 hours, 36 minutes, 37 seconds and 7 tenths of a second was set by Gregor Tekavec in 2011. In 2014 and 2016 Matej Lovše and Primož Obal almost beat this result, but both missed setting the new record by just one second.
