Socially distanced running in Slovenia

Record attempt under lockdown

Following Jakob Ingebritsen’s national 5km road record set in Stavanger on 20 May under ‘social distancing’ conditions organisers in Slovenia are planning to stage a similar event.

Borut Podgornik reports: The [coronavirus] situation here in Slovenia is quite good and looks brighter for the future. There are already some events scheduled for June. One of them will be 1st Maribor 5km Challenge on Wednesday 17 June at 20.00 for a limited number of invited athletes only (maybe 5–7 of them). The course is on pedestrian and bicycle paths, so not wide enough for a mass race – which is not allowed at the moment anyway. We will invite the best Slovenian runners to attack the national road record for 5km.
