The Noćni Maraton (Night Marathon) in Zagreb has quickly become one of Croatia's most popular running events.

Only 2,000 spots are available, first come first served. Get your registration in early, the event may sell out well in advance.

There are race options for all levels of runners:

  • 4.2km (1/10 marathon)
  • 10.55km (1/4 marathon)
  • 21.1km (1/2 marathon)
  • 31.65km (3/4 marathon)
  • 42.2km (full marathon)

The start/finish area is at Bundek, a lake in Novi Zagreb on the right bank of the Sava which flows from west to east through the southern part of the city.

The route is a 10.55-kilometre loop along both banks of the river. 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 flat and smooth and illuminated during the race.
