The Riječki maraton i polumaraton (Rijeka Marathon and Half Marathon) is held in the port of Rijeka, Croatia's third-largest city with a population of about 130,000.

Starting and finishing on Korzo, the pedestrianized main street in the city centre, the marathon takes the runners along the coast of the Kvarner Gulf, at first to the Termoelektrana (thermal power station) east of the city, then through the harbour and along the molo longo breakwater in the city centre, and finally to the Autocamp Preluk on the western edge of the city, passing high-rise residential areas and the 3. Maj shipyard (pictured above).

The route is AIMS/IAAF-certified, scenic, varied and challenging. Be prepared for some long ascents and descents.
