Fifteen days until the 3rd Krka Half Marathon

The event will, this year as well, offer the participants a special experience of running in one of the most beautiful parts of Croatia, in surroundings of protected nature and a unique cultural and historical heritage.

We are getting closer to 3rd Krka Half Marathon which will take place in autumn this year, on Saturday, 26 September 2020, which was supposed to take place in April and postponed due to epidemiological measures.

The starting point of the race remains the same – Krka Eco Campus in Puljane, as well as the finish – Burnum Amphitheatre. For all those who find the Half Marathon too much of a challenge, the 5.5 km FunRun race is also on the schedule, which has been attracting more and more competitors over the years. There is also a climbing and racing challenge – the crown of Emperor Trajan, a reward for runners who most quickly overcome the ascent from the canyon of the Krka River at the Brljan waterfall.

The starting package for each runner, among other content, includes a ticket for Krka National Park, which can be used on the weekend of the race. Also, a newly opened archeological collection is available at the Krka Eco Campus, which can be visited just before the start in Puljane.

As in previous years, bus transport is provided from Skradin, Šibenik and Drniš. The distribution of starting packages will be on Friday, 25 September 2020 at the branch office of Public Institute of Krka NP in Drniš and just before the race on Saturday. All those who applied and paid the registration fees for the original date, are automatically registered for the new date. Anyone who still wants to register can still do so via the official website until Monday, 21 September 2020. Due to epidemiological measures, the total number of runners is limited to 500 (250 for the Half Marathon, 250 for FunRun).

The Half-marathon track starts at the Krka Eco Campus in Puljane, passes through autochthonous places full of old stone houses and dry stone walls at the bottom of Promina, descends into the Krka canyon near Brljan Lake and then ascends to the Burnum amphitheatre. Thousands of years of human history and an era of natural processes took place at those 21098 metres, and shaped this unique landscape in many ways. There are five waterfalls, three medieval fortresses and a Roman amphitheatre, with numerous traces of human life, intertwined with the life of the river, spreading at four kilometres of the upper course of the Krka River. For most visitors, it is the unknown Krka. It is almost unbelievable that there are so many wonderful places, shaped by people or river, that we can get to know in the dry, rocky area of ​​the deep canyon.
