For the past three years, the town of Metajna, located 12 km from Novalja, has hosted a completely different race which will launch you straight out of our orbit!
The Life on Mars Trail, a project which started as a race and turned into a new tourist product, is one of those festivals everyone should participate in at least once in their lifetime.
The specificities of the landscape and the natural wonders of Metajna, as well as a part of the city of Novalja which resembles the surface of Mars, make this race one of the most beautiful and most intriguing in Croatia. That is why each year the race attracts many runners from all over the world!
Over a thousand participants in 2019
In 2019, race hosted more than 1300 participants on trails which were 7, 14, 21 and 25 kilometers long. In addition to Croatian runners, the race attracted runners from nearby Slovenia, Italy and Austria, but also runners from the USA, Spain and Germany, which is why the Life on Mars Trail race has been international from its very beginnings.
This year there are 3 categories – Challenger (23km), Active (14 km) and Light (7 km)
Finally, if you’re wondering if there’s life on Mars, we recommend you come check it out yourself next March, when the Life on Mars Trail race is bound to break even more records.
