Held each September in Varaždin, an old town of about 47,000 people situated in the far north of Croatia, near the borders with Slovenia and Hungary, the Varaždinski polumaraton offers a half marathon, a 5km run and children's races.

The half marathon route consists of two laps — a 5km loop through the town centre and a 16km loop that tours the southern parts of Varaždin.

Starting on Kapucinski trg (Capuchin Square) on the edge of the very beautiful Baroque Old Town, the race takes the runners through the historic centre, around the castle (pictured) and through residential areas.

The course is certified and flat.
