A few Carnethies travelled to Slovenia last weekend for the 18th WMRA/WMA World Masters Mountain Running Championships in Zelezniki.
We were part of Scottish contingent of 10 who were in action amongst the field of 400 competitors. There were two challenging courses, the long route of 10.8k with 1184m of height difference for men up to 54, and the shorter route of 7.2k with 869m of height difference for the men ages 55-79, and all women (ages 35-79). The terrain included a short stretch on pavement at the start of each race, and then a combination of wide forested path, single track trails, rocky steps, a section to the finish line in a meadow filled with wildflowers and amazing mountain views.
Beautiful country and great weekend rounded off by a day\evening in Venice before flying home.
