The Noćni Maraton (‘Night Marathon’) in Zagreb is Croatia's quickest-growing running event. Within two years, it has broken the 1,000-entries barrier.

Organized by an experienced team of runners, the event offers five races:


Race distance
Start time
Number of finishers 2015
4.2km (1/10 marathon) 19.00


10.55km (1/4 marathon) 20.00 517
21.1km (1/2 marathon) 19.40 224
31.65km (3/4 marathon) 19.40 90
42.2km (marathon) 19.40 54


All races begin and end at Bundek, a lake in a park of the same name, situated on the right bank of the River Sava which flows from west to east through the city.

The route is a 10.55km-long loop along both banks of the Sava, so the half marathon is two laps, the three-quarter marathon is three laps, and the full marathon is four laps.

The majority of the route is on gravel paths which are mostly flat and smooth and illuminated during the race. Just about one fifth of the course is on aspalt.
