Trail & Trekking League

It’s only a week before a start of another Trail & Trekking League in Croatia. It’s a series of trail races and adventure runs (Croatians call these races Trekking races or just Trek) that are held mostly in Croatia, but also in Montenegro and in Bosnia and Herzegovina. First edition of Trekking League was in 2005 and it had only 6 races. Over years it changed selection and number of races and this year it brings us 13 different races. More than 3600 runners competed in league during past 8 years and almost 40% were women!

Races held on islands (Pašman, Krk, Cres, Mljet, Rab) usually follow ridges but will also take you along some beautiful beaches. They have less climbs but the course can be equally challenging, depending of category. Plus, you will get some spectacular views to the Adriatic and you can take a swim after crossing the finish line. 🙂 Continental races will take you over some of our most beautiful mountains (Velebit, Medvednica, Papuk) and you will have a chance to visit some charming hills in interior (Zagorje, Istria). Each race have 2 or 3 categories with distances that vary around 15/25/50 km. Velebit Ultra Trail, the most difficult (but also magical) race in this league (and probably in Croatia at all) has a 100+ km category and it will be a real challenge even for the most prepared runners.

Here’s the list of races. We hope we’ll see you on some of them:
