The Savski Hendrix polumaraton offers two highly scenic trail races (a 5k and a half marathon) along the River Sava which flows through the southern part of Croatia's capital Zagreb.

Both routes are flat and almost entirely on trails or gravel roads.

Starting and finishing on the embankment of the river, the half marathon route goes upstream past Lake Jarun to the western city limits and then back along the opposite river bank.

Last year, 480 runners took part in the half marathon, and almost 100 ran the 5k.
