9th 'Mursko Središće Town Run' 2014

Mursko Središće (Croatia), Saturday 30 August 2014

Utrka grada Mursko Središće - the start (Copyright © 2012 Utrka grada Mursko Središće)


The Utrka grada Mursko Središće offers a 10k road race and a 2.5k town run.

Both races begin and end at the football pitch of Mursko Središće, a small town that sits on the River Mura at the northern tip of Croatia.

The area is unspectacular but very charming with rolling hills and vineyards to the west, low-lying farmland to the east, green dikes along the Mura, and three thermal spas in three different countries nearby. A short walk across the river brings you to Slovenia, and Hungary is also just about ten kilometres away.

Participants in the 10k race run out and back a country road through the agricultural area east of Mursko Središće.

Although the entry fees are very low, there are many small prizes for the best finishers, and all participants get a meal after the race.
