Important information for the public, fans and participants of the 2nd Krka Half-Marathon

There are just a few days to go until the start of the 2nd Krka Half-Marathon, the international athletic race through Krka National Park.

On Saturday, 13 April 2019, about 700 runners from 18 countries will run from the Krka Eco Campus in Puljane, to the Burnum amphitheatre, a race course that is 21,098 m long. A special challenge for runners is the final climb out of the Krka Canyon, and the fastest male and female runner to conquer that ascent will receive a special prize. In addition to the half-marathon, there will also be a Fun Run for the general public on a 5.5 m course, starting and finishing at the same sites. The Krka Half-Marathon is quickly become a real family event. In addition to the half-marathon, Fun Run and the climb challenge at the Krka Canyon, a series of races for children will also take place at the Burnum amphitheatre.

Schedule

The half-marathon kicks off in front of the Krka Eco Campus in Puljane at 10:00 am, while the Fun Run race begins at 10:10 am. At 11:30 am, the winner of the Fun Run race will be announced at the finish line at the Burnum amphitheatre, while the overall winner of the 2nd Krka Half-Marathon will be announced at 12:30 pm, and winners by categories at 1:00 pm. The programme ends at 2:00 pm. The children's races begin at 11:15 am, and all those coming to Burnum just for the children's races need to arrive by 9:45 am at the latest, as following this the road will be closed and passage to Burnum disabled.

Traffic regulation

On Saturday, 13 April traffic will be completely closed from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm along the race route, on the following route:

Krka Eco Campus in Puljane – access road to county road Ž6055 – Ž6055 from state road D59 to the centre of Oklaj (Nursing home/Supermarket) – state road D59 from the intersection with county road Ž6055 to the Burnum amphitheatre – at sites on uncategorised roads in Parići, Bračići and Nečven – local road 65025 and local road 65014 from the intersection with local road 65025 to the exit onto county road Ž6055 in Čitluk.

In these segments, only official race vehicles and emergency vehicles will be permitted. Traffic will be regulated by police and traffic guards installed by the organisers. In certain sections (above all in the settlements Parići, Bračići and Nečven) traffic will be reinstated once the final runner has passed.

Start packages

Runners can pick up their start numbers and start packages on Friday, 12 April in Drniš, at the branch office of the Public Institute of Krka National Park, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, or on race day, on Saturday 13 April in front of the Burnum amphitheatre from 7:30 to 9:30 am. We recommend you pick up your start packages the day before. In addition to the start number and chip, refreshments for during and after the race, and promotional materials (sneaker bag, T-shirt, energy gel), racers will also receive tickets to visit Krka National Park during the race weekend.

Organized transport for runners

On race day, bus transport has been organised for runners from Drniš (from the bus station), Šibenik (from the bus station) and Skradin (from the bus stop by the primary school) directly to the starting line. The bus from Drniš leaves at 7:00 am, and from Šibenik and Skradin at 6:30 pm. This transfer is free, though runners need to register for it at the email race@akmaraton2000.hr. For those runners coming to the start line on their own, they may park their cars exclusively at the finish line, at the parking lot by the amphitheatre. Buses will transport runners to the start line between 9:00 and 9:30 am (first half-marathon participants, then Fun Run racers), when the final bus leaves. Racers will not be able to come to the starting line on their own. Also, return to Burnum will not be possible before 1:30 pm, as all roads will be closed to traffic.

Route

Along the route, there will be five refreshment stands, with water, isotonic drinks and fruit. The main refreshment stand will be at the finish line in Burnum, in the celebratory ambience of the Roman military camp. The furthest point on the route is in the settlement Oklaj, where the turning point is and from which runners turn back and head towards the Burnum amphitheatre. The Fun Run race route heads straight to Burnum. On that route, there will be one refreshment stand, with water, near the end of the ascent from the Krka Canyon.

Half-marathon runners will wear blue start bibs with numbers starting at 300, while Fun Run participants will weak green bibs with numbers starting from 1.
