The race starts in Petrčane from the magnificent site of King’s Vineyards. The gravel road begins immediately at the start. The route also passes through the ex military barracks Šepurine and after approximately 5 kilometers the competitors arrive at Zaton, famous tourist village where the beautiful beach is a proud holder of the Blue flag for cleanliness and water quality. Following the gravel road parallel with the main road the route leads competitors to Nin, one of the most important cities in the history of Croatia. In this part, the route follows a walking path by the seaside and then it connects to a narrow gravel road. On a few occassions there are bigger routes which need to be carefully crossed over. The route also passes over a sandy beach. Around the 15th kilometer the route exits on the main road where competitors need to be cautious and aware of the traffic. The main road takes us over the Vir bridge after which the route connects to a gravel road. Competitors are then off to a narrow rocky trail which brings them to the seaside. The last few kilometers takes the competitors on both asphalt and gravel road. The end of the race is in Vir, a village on the island with the same name.
