We had a very memorable time in Rabac leading up to and participating in the Valamar Trail 53km race in 2014. There are so many aspects to our enjoyment of this race. The race itself was well organized and very good value with extremely friendly hosts and participants. The course was varied but hilly and technical in places providing a good challenge. The scenery was outstanding and interesting (historical towns, farmlands, bush, hilltops, oceanside and breathtaking views from many vantage points). The presenting sponsor, Valamar, took grieat care of us with a comfortable hotel stay with beautiful pool and beach access and excellent meals. If you're looking for a welcoming community race in a beautiful setting with a good stretch for the legs and lungs, look no further than this one!
