6 October 2019 – Later this month one of the most popular ultra trails will take place in Croatia. 900 runners from 30 countries are set to take part in the 4th edition of the Dalmatia Ultra Trail.

Five mountains – Biokovo, Mosor, Omiška Dinara, Primorska Kosa, Kozjak, three rivers – Cetina, Žrnovnica, Jadro, historical and cultural hotspots like Fortica and Klis fortresses, as well as remains of ancient city Salona will all be connected in one long haul by the race taking place on 18th – 20th of October.

The idea of the race is to offer a challenge filled with stunning views, beautiful nature and stories of rich history and cultural heritage.

“We invite you to explore what Dalmatia has to offer and suggest you plan a little vacation around the race. Beautiful and sometimes brutal landscapes, numerous beaches, rich history and culture, great wines and gastronomy, lots of sunny days and friendly people are a good start. Add a mild Mediterranean climate and there’s hardly a better place to be in October,” organisers said.
