Soča Outdoor Festival

September 13th to September 15th 2013, Tolmin, Slovenia 

The Soča Outdoor Festival will offer an unforgettable “flow” on the trails, water and evening dance parties. It will take place in Tolmin, western part of Slovenia, near the Italian border. Tolmin lies in the Soča river valley, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Alps. The festival main scene is surrounded by high mountains, rivers and pastures. 


The variety of sports disciplines offers something for everyone. For the runners, two runs are offered. First is the Alpe Adria Run, a 12 km recreational run with a route along the Soča river. The other run is the Soča Trail Run, which is a bit more demanding, but even more enjoyable. Organizer guarantee that this two runs will be the most beautiful you have ever run. For those who are cycling lovers, three different competitions will be prepared. The Soča MTB Marathon, as the main discipline, the cross-country eliminator competition turned into an evening show with DJ under a spot lights and the Climb to the Razor Mountain for those who dislike riding downhill. In additional programme cycling climb to Matajur and Stol Mountain will be organized and also a trip with road bicycles. More about competitions: http://en.soca-outdoor.com/programme/competitions/.

There will be also organized programs for children such as scout activities and kayak school. More about additional programme: http://en.soca-outdoor.com/programme/additional-programme/.
