15. Mountain Mini Marathon "Korita"
In this mountain race in the interior of the Istrian peninsula in Croatia, just 30km from the crowded coast, you will run through old stone villages and untamed countryside with stunning views of inland Istria.
With an elevation gain of 635 metres on a 10km course on mixed terrain this is one of the easiest mountain races in Croatia. And if you prefer shorter races you can also finish the race after 5km in the village of Brgudac. The competitors in the main event of 10km will continue on their way to the mountain hut on the Ćičarija mountain range.
