The Brdska utrka Ivančica (‘Ivančica Mountain Race’) is a mountain running event held each year in June in a lovely rural area in northern Croatia.

The route is 13km long, starting in the small town of Ivanec and finishing on the summit of the densely-wooded Ivanščica (also called "Ivančica"), the highest mountain in the region.

From start to finish, the course features 827m of ascent.

The first three kilometres are run on asphalt roads. Then, the route winds its way on gravel roads up the mountain.

There will be a bus waiting on top of the mountain to take runners back to the start area in the afternoon.
