No matter how demanding or critical you might be, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort to find fault with this race. If you expect a lot from a race, Dubrovnik will offer you much more. Excellent organization, a rich starter package, breathtaking landscapes… These are just some of the reasons why you should join us at the starting line. And if you think this isn’t enough, the organizers have arranged a free trip to Lokrum Island, access to the city walls, entry to all city museums, free public transport throughout your stay, as well as discounts in numerous restaurants and establishments in the city.
In addition to the half marathon, there’s also a 5 km charity pleasure run available.
The start and finish of the half marathon are on Stradun, the most famous and longest street in Dubrovnik. You’ll run alongside the sea, on the main road, with a turning point at Prijevor, heading back towards the old town. Along the route, you’ll find 5 refreshment stations which you’ll pass twice, meaning you’ll have refreshments every 2 kilometers.
The renowned starter package of this race is widely known to make your stay in the city much more favorable.
After participating in this race multiple times, we confirm that the Dubrovnik half marathon is an event that never gets dull and has become a favorite among our travelers over time.
