21st "International Hagemann Run" 2012
Petrijanec (Croatia), Sunday 8 July 2012
With less than 100 participants (not counting the popular children's races), the Trka Hagemann is a small road running event, held in a small village in the far north of Croatia. Nevertheless, over the past 20 years runners from many European countries have taken part in the race.
It's a lovely summer evening event, organized by marathon maniac Anna Hagemann, who grew up in the village but now lives in Hamburg. The villagers support the event with loads of home-made cakes and other culinary delights for the after-race buffet.
Entrants can choose between the 2.75km run (one lap) and the 11km race (four laps).
The route is a flat loop around the hamlet of Družbinec, located in the municipality of Petrijanec, close to the border with Slovenia and just about 10 kilometres from the picturesque baroque town of Varaždin.
