RUN 4 FUN
The most exciting active weekend in Rovinj awaits you at the end of April, just the right time for spring awakening. Popolana, a distinctive one-day event, is filled with sports and recreational events, entertainment for children and adults, while its praiseworthy humanitarian character can be felt throughout the event.
Sunday 24th of April is a day for true runners when, together with 2 x 9 km long relay race and the 5 km amateur’s races, the spectacular Rovinj half marathon takes place. This year we will offer the brand new path for runners. The new track is called Štrika Ferata and it is located on the north part of the City.
Relay couples will run up & down all the way till Rovinj village where will be located the flip turn.
First runner will run uphill for 9 km while the second runner will be waitting at the turning point. When the first one arrives, the second runner will have easier task becouse the road back to the City of Rovign is downhill 😉
Runners who will participate Popolana Halfmarathon will run all the way to Lim Bay situated futher north from the Rovinj village. Elevation is around 130 m. Good luck 😉
Would You like to help us on ŠTRIKA FERATA
There is no half marathon race on any part of the globe without volunteers, so we ask you to participate and help organize the race. Without your help it will be very difficult to secure the entire length of the trail and we hope that if you do not actively participate in running, come and help us along the trail.
