The Sljemenski maraton is a very challenging and unusual mountain running event that begins and ends at the radio transmission tower on Sljeme (1031m), the highest peak of Mount Medvednica which rises to the north of Croatia's capital Zagreb.

The event offers a 4km run, a 14km race, and a 42.2km marathon which consists of three laps. It's possible to form a team of three runners to run the marathon as a relay (3 x 14km). One member of each team must be of the opposite sex.

The route is a 14km loop on woodland trails. The first half is downhill, the second half uphill. Each lap includes 383m of descent and 383m of ascent!

You can get to Sljeme by car or public bus from Zagreb.
