The traditional Plava Laguna Half-Marathon will be held in Poreč on 23 and 24 March 2019.
We're expecting more than 500 running fans who want to try their hand at a half-marathon and spend an unforgettable spring weekend by the sea. While you're running along the beautifully kept, flat course, you will enjoy breathtaking locations such as Plava and Zelena resorts and the town of Poreč.
If the 21km of a half-marathon seems too much of a challenge, you can try the 10km Run instead. There's also a fun race for kids (Kids’ Run from 400m to 1,800m) and a group race for the whole family (Family Run 3.5km).
Whichever race you choose, the fun atmosphere, fresh spring air and great company are a winning combination! All registered competitors will receive a T-shirt (half-marathon and 10k run), a finisher medal, a start number, chip, course surveillance, and refreshment. Registration for the race is free if you book accommodation at one of Plava Laguna's accommodation facilities.
All half marathon runners can truly enjoy the new track, which will this year run from the Hotel Laguna Parentium via the Plava Laguna Resort through the town of Poreč to Materada/Park Resort and back. Everyone aged 16 and older can register.
