Join us on Sunset run and experience unique adventure in Zadar! We expect you on May 9th 2020 to run on one of the most beautiful seaside races with views over the 3000 year old town of Zadar; town that has survived numerous attacks only to come stronger each time, like a phoenix arising from the ashes. Run with us and run into the most spectacular sunset followed by sounds of the famous Sea Organ. Unique experience that will stay in your memory for a lifetime. We have 3 races for you: 700 m - for the youngest ones, and those that feel that way; 5 km - for little more adventurous; 10 km - pushing a limit a bit further...


The start for all participants is at the Greeting to the Sun. At 17:30 there is an organized warm-up for everybody before the start signal for 700m race goes off at 18:00. 5K & 10K races start as soon as all the participants of 700m race have entered the Finish line.

700 m race starts at the Greeting to the Sun by the sea and towards the bridge. It turns right immediately after the red house of the Port Authority, and in front of the Arsenal in order to get back to the seaside street and into the Finish line! Participants to the 5K & 10K races start from the Greeting to the Sun, continue along the inner side of the promenade and cross over one of the most famous sights in Zadar – the bridge, and then continue left towards the main harbor in Zadar. The competitors run along the seaside most of the race, and after 2,5 km is the turning point for the competitors running 5 km. To be more precise, the turning point is at the Marex beach. The competitors running 10 km continue running along the seaside and pass by the most beautiful and famous beaches in Zadar until they come to the Beach bar Bamboo at Puntamika where they turn around and follow the same route back to the finish line. The finish line for both disciplines is at the Greeting to the Sun, just in time to enjoy the most beautiful sunset in the world, according to Alfred Hitchcock and many others.
