The very first Dubrovnik Half Marathon attracted runners from 34 countries and 5 continents. It was instantly recognized as one of the most successful and most professionally organized Croatian races, becoming a hit on the global calendar of race events.
“We had the opportunity to be a part of an amazing race, in a breathtaking city, at the other end of the world!“ - commented an American runner Michele Crim, openly expressing her enthusiasm after finishing the 2015 race. Michele was just one of the many international runners who participated in the first Dubrovnik Half Marathon.
“This event is a result of a longstanding collaboration between Dubrovnik and its twin city of Monterey, California. “More than a race” is a motto which promotes both sport and a healthy lifestyle, all within the spectacular scenery of the ancient city of Dubrovnik,” said Alen Boskovic, the race director. Boskovic was later rewarded for his hard work when he received the “Director of the Year” prize at the last year’s Event Director Conference held in Portland, USA.
This year Dubrovnik Half Marathon is again inviting all runners who are ready to test their strength, technique and speed within the historical scenery of one of the most beautiful Mediterranean locations. Runners are invited to register for the 2016 Dubrovnik Half Marathon which will take place on the 1st of May 2016.
Although the half marathon is the main event the organisers, DU Motion, have plenty else in store for runners of all levels. Over the two days there will also be a “Run the Walls” event, a race around the 2 kilometres of the ancient Dubrovnik City Walls, truly a unique race. There will also be a short “Children’s Run” which will be held along the main street of the Old City, the Stradun. And finally a “5 kilometre” race aimed at raising humanitarian awareness and sponsors. Save the date, the 1st of May is Dubrovnik Half Marathon Day, and get your registration in early to book your place for what is sure to be a popular international race once again.
