9 March 2019 – For the third year in a row, the Pag Island Trail & Trekk: Life on Mars, David Bowie tribute race will be held on the Croatian island of Pag.
Last year around 800 competitors from all over Croatia and Europe took part in the race and more are expected to turn out this year when the race is held on Saturday, 30 March 2019.
The name of the race – Life on Mars – is dedicated to the late David Bowie’s 1970s hit ‘Life on Mars’ because of the similarity the stoney island has with Mars or the moon and is used as marketing to attract competitors from around Europe to race in unique conditions.
The Tourist Board of Novalja and Pag have positioned the Pag Island Trail & Trekk – Life on Mars as a tourist product in the adventure tourism sector. The unique nature of the island makes it a special experience for competitors.
