The very scenic Savski polumaraton in Croatia's capital Zagreb comprises a half marathon and a 5K run. The route is on trails along both banks of the River Sava.

The start and finish are on the embankment of the Sava, approximately 3.5 kilometres from Zagreb's city centre.

Competitors run on the dykes, at first upstream (past Lake Jarun) to the western city limits and then back along the opposite embankment.

In 2012, 330 runners took part in the event. The top half marathon finishers were Goran Murić (1:18:30) and Ingrid Nikolesić (1:29:28).
