Race Venue

 

Alpineman Xtreme Triathlon is centered around and within the magnificent Triglav National Park (TNP), a true pride of the Slovenian nation. Triglav National Park is the only Slovenian national park and is named after the highest Slovenian summit Mt. Triglav, located in the heart of the park. The mountain presents a true national symbol and is featured on the national coat of arms and the flag. It extends in the north-western part of Slovenia, in the south-eastern part of the Alps. The park covers 880 square kilometers of mountainous and foresty area, or 4 % of the Slovenian territory and it is one of the oldest European parks.
