7th Sava Half Marathon 2015
Zagreb (Croatia), Saturday 4 April 2015
The Savski polumaraton in Croatia's capital Zagreb offers two trail races (a 5k and a half marathon) along the River Sava which flows through the southern part of the city.
This year, the event will be held on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter.
Starting and finishing on the dike of the river (approximately 3.5km from the city centre), the half marathon route goes upstream past Lake Jarun to the western city limits, and then back along the opposite embankment.
Participants in the 5k race also run along both banks of river.
Both routes are mostly flat, almost entirely on trails or gravel roads, and highly scenic!
