granfondo pag race 2019 visual

The first international cycling marathon “Granfondo Pag – Cycling on the Moon” will be held on Saturday, September 28, in Novalja on the island of Pag.

The 92 km long trail starts at Zrće Beach, passes through Žigljen, Metajna, Stara Novalja, Lun and ends at Hotel Olea in Novalja. The altitude difference is 1200 meters.

What is Granfondo?

What is a marathon for runners, an Ironman for triathletes, that is Granfondo for cyclists.

The competitors in the lead group are struggling to win, those in the middle to have the best possible personal time, and the cyclists in the back to complete such a challenging race.

More than racing with other cyclists, Granfondo is a personal struggle, and successfully ending the trail is the biggest prize!

Recreational race “Mini Grafondo”

On the same day, you can also participate in the first recreational race “Mini Granfondo”. The 40km long trail starts in Novalja, passes through Metajna and Žigljen and ends at Hotel Olea in Novalja.

There are also great awards for the absolute winners of Granfondo Pag:

2nd place – Gligora cheese
3rd place – gift package by Boškinac winery
