100 Miles of Istria
100 Miles of Istria and its shorter siblings are the biggest trail running event in Croatia. The 100 mile race starts at 5pm local time on Friday 6th April in Labin on the east coast. It takes runners across the whole beautiful Istrian peninsula and is the Red/elite route. The Blue 110km race starts at midnight on Friday/Saturday in Lovan. The Green 67km event starts at 8am on Saturday in Buzet, and the Yellow 41km race starts at 2pm in Motovun. All the events finish in Umag in the west.

The event started with 237 runners in 2013. The sixth edition this weekend will involve over 1000 competitors and is part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour. The cut-off for the 100 mile event is 46 hours. This year's elite runners include Francesca Canepa, Julien Chorier and Paul Giblin. In this case, 'elites' are those who are UTWT supported athletes or who have 800+ (men) or 700+ (women) ITRA points.

It looks set to be an exciting weekend and we will be watching closely.
