Running in Zagreb

And around Zagreb Sava half-marathon

Yesterday on my walking-running routine I ran into a marathon runners. It was the Sava half-marathon run on April 4th on the banks of the Sava River. There was 718 runners registered, and it was a fantastic view of the runners running along the bank of the river. See the detail about the Sava half-marathon.

We have several interesting races in Zagreb. In September traditionally many people join the Terry Fox Run. It’s a humanitarian action to collect money for Cancer research on September 20th 2015. It will be the 10th anniversary race. Join even if you are not a runner, you can walk, roller skate or ride a bike. Terry Fox run is organized next to the Sava embankments – on the Jarun Lake.

On October 11th we have the Zagreb Marathon – run in the city, it’s a big event for all fans of running and the city center is closed to traffic. See detail on Zagreb Marathon page.

If you want to experience the Plitvice Lakes in a new way you can do it by running the Marathon around it.  –> Here is the correction to the previously published dates: The Plitvice Marathon is on June 7th, check the correct page link of the Plitvice Marathon.

For all of you runners check this page for a running calendar in Croatia. Here are my highlights for those who want to mix running with the pleasure of discovering new destinations (the texts are usually simple with announcements so please use Google translate for better understanding, it’s worth it):
