The Žumberačka utrka is a very hilly and scenic 15.5-kilometre road running race, held in a beautiful, thinly-populated mountain region in Croatia — the Žumberak.

Although it's a small event in a remote location runners from many different countries have taken part in the race. In 2011, the winners were Tamás Nagy (54:37) and Zita Kácser (1:02:51), both of Hungary.

The race is a point-to-point course from the hamlet of Radatovići to the village of Sošice. The route is very challenging, always uphill or downhill, never flat.

Registration and the after-race party take place in Sošice, which is approximately 70 kilometres from Zagreb.

In case you don't fancy a long drive on narrow and twisty roads to get there you can use the free bus service from Zagreb to Sošice (and back to Zagreb in the evening).
