Miro is also a veteran of this event and is well prepared to finish it in style.

There are only six starters. We think that this is a sign of a demanding race and difficult social conditions in the area. We sincerely hope that the race will be held the next ear and that there will be more starters. Maybe reading these reports will motivate you to join them?

We wish them all good luck.

  1. Ahhh, I’ll be in Zagreb day after tomorrow 😀

  2. Good luck to you – I look forward to hearing the results and seeing photos! What a remarkable race and one that I would love to see, if I were closer!

  3. I don’t think so, running 344 km in 5 days. I want to live until I’m in my 90’s but I’ll stick with shorter distances :)
