K24 is the 80km trail that connects 5 most important peaks of Koroška: Olševa, Peca, Raduha, Smrekovec and Uršlja gora. The challenge is to make it in under 24h.
The Koroška mountain challenge is an 80 km long route featuring ascents on the five highest peaks in Koroška – Uršlja gora (1699 m), Smrekovec (1577 m), Raduha (2062 m), Olševa (1930 m) and Peca (2125 m). The most endurable and adventurous mountaineers who complete the trail in less than 24 hours become the members of the Club 24. Even if you are not an extreme athlete, it is worth climbing these peaks. We recommend that you climb and experience them on a several day tour or in the form of individual ascents.
The trail runs through a network of mountain trails marked with red-white "Knafelč" sign. But some shortcuts are required to finnish it in under 24h, which require good preperation in advance, regarding orientation, supplies, etc.
Those who manage to overcome this challenge in under 24h, become members in a honorary club K24 a club with less than 400 members.
