Race Set to Celebrate Croatia's Connectivity and Statehood Day

Pelješac Bridge

On May 29th, 2023, the second edition of the Pelješac Bridge race will be held.

This is an exciting opportunity for all those who want to experience a real racing spectacle on one of the largest bridges in Europe. Moreover, this bridge holds significant historical and cultural value as a symbol of Croatian connectivity that has been longed for centuries.

The premiere edition of this race was held last year as part of the opening ceremony of the Pelješac Bridge. The organizers, Du Motion, proved their ability to organize such a demanding event, leading to the acceptance of the idea of making this race an annual tradition. 

“We are extremely happy that our partners from Croatian Roads have accepted the idea that this race become traditional and that we will mark this important moment of connecting the far south with the rest of the country, just before the celebration of the Statehood Day of the Republic of Croatia,” said Alen Bošković, director of Du Motion.

The 5.5-kilometer race will start at 8:30 pm this time. The registration fee is 27 euros, and the runner’s package includes an official T-shirt, finisher’s medal, race number, timing, and refreshments.

All those interested in participating can register through our website, with an important note that the minimum age requirement is 10 years old, Du Motion said. 

Participation of children aged 10 to 15 is possible only with the presence of the runner’s parent, and for minors aged 15 to 18, parental consent is required. The number of participants is limited to 250 runners.
