This trail will show you Central Istria in all its glory!

Although arduous, it is a great option for participants that are a bit less experienced in trail races. However, it still offers an opportunity to experience all the aspects of trail running – strenuous climbs, steep slopes, crossing creeks, as well as muddy and rocky terrain. At the same time, it leads through the beautiful medieval towns of Motovun, Oprtalj, Završje, and Grožnjan.

The trail starts in the old town of Buzet and takes the shortest route to Butoniga lake, and it finish in the city of Umag. As for the terrain, expect large stretches of softer surfaces, combined with the all-present Istrian rock.

The 69 km long trail with the climb of +2.220 m is an excellent start for participants who would like to try 168K or 110K course next time.
