The warm autumn sun is just so inviting for sports in nature. Kranj has quite a few corners where you can breathe fresh air and relax your body, even with a beautiful view. You can choose from a variety of cycling, running, walking and hiking trails. Wherever the path may take you, don't forget a spark of curiosity and explore the hidden paths that can bring you most beautiful moments. At the same time, please respect the natural beauty and its inhabitants, so that their beauty can be admired by those who come after you.
The beauty, elegance and grandeur of horses are usually what attract people to equestrianism. In Kranj, you can experience adventures with horses on the Brdo and Ovsenik estates.
The Brdo Golf Course is located in a peaceful natural environment on an estate that has more than 500 years of history. The course is particularly suitable for beginners as the distances between holes are shorter and do not require a lot of experience in golf.
The Plezarna activities centre offers high quality leisure time opportunities for recreational athletes and professional climbers. Here you can climb independently or learn with guided and individual climbing exercises. Plezarna is family-friendly and there are plenty of activities for both adults and children.
At the moment, it's a bit too cold to jump into rivers or lakes, but the Kokra and Sava Rivers, the Lake Trboje and the Bobovek Ponds are always a great idea for short trips. The autumn colours suit them so well. You can also swim in the Olympic indoor pool, which has a large and a small pool as well as a fitness centre and training rooms for sport climbing and boxing.
4th Run for Kranj – the Vincenc Draksler Memorial

Runners can choose between the 3.3 km run and the 10 km run. They can determine the route themselves and then submit their results on a special form on the event website no later than 10 October at midnight.
