24th Half Marathon "Ivan Starek"

Zagreb (Croatia), Sunday 14 November 2010

Lake Jarun, Zagreb, Croatia (Copyright © 2010 runinternational.eu)


Boasting a pancake-flat, traffic-free and certified course, this half marathon in Croatia's capital city Zagreb gives athletes a good chance to run a personal best time.

Participants run three laps along the road that encircles Lake Jarun in the south-western part of Zagreb. The first lap includes a detour to the Island of the Croatian Youth, because one lap around the lake is only 6.3 kilometres.

Lake Jarun was created for the Summer Universiade 1987. It features a 2km-long rowing regatta course, shingle beaches, sports facilities, cafés and clubs.

In 2009, the half marathon had 269 finishers. The winners were Croatia's Dražen Dinjar (1:11:12) and Slovenia's Ida Šurbek (1:17:34).

The event is held in remembrance of the endurance runner Ivan Starek, 30-times finisher of the Partizanski marš ("Partisan march").
