This year, the Plitvice Marathon, one of the most beautiful marathons in the world, will take place for the 34th time.
The whole event will feature a marathon race, a half-marathon race and a regular 5-kilometre race through the incredible nature of the Plitvice Lakes National Park. It will be a weekend full of activity.
Last year’s marathon saw over two thousand runners from around the world, and this year the weekend event which will take place from 31 May to 2 June is expected to attract over four thousand people, many of whom will spend the whole weekend at Plitvice Lakes.
The first races – the 5-kilometre and childrens’ races – are the first to start on Saturday, 1 June, while the following day is reserved for the professionals running the marathon and half-marathon.
This race, continuously supported by the Tourist Board of the Plitvice Lakes Municipality, has been very popular from its very beginning. In addition to the participants, the marathon is followed and supported by many visitors, so the contest itself is also a pleasant social event.
