The eighth Cetina Adventure Race for all true adventurers does not need any special presentation. Year after year, it has become more appealing to lovers of adrenaline and inanimate nature and is a breathtaking experience that sees increasing numbers with each new edition. The race tests the participant’s physical and mental readiness and how they work on teams, while the steep climbs of the Visoka, Visošnica, Kamešnica, Dinara, and Svilaja mountains, and the river canyons Sutina and Cetina, richly reward all competitors.

The race consists of four disciplines:

The first is trekking, within which the canyoning is found. While it is essential to find the shortest possible path in trekking, the canyoning discipline is kept entirely in the canyon from the start to finish determined by the organizer.

In addition to trekking and canyoning, the contestants will also try kayaking and mountain biking. The layout of the track and the schedule of checkpoints are kept secret until the technical meeting the day before the race itself. The organizers reveal just the details – that the mountain biking discipline will be longer than 50 kilometers (out of the total of 100-kilometers).

The race will take place on June 2, 2018. The start and the finish of the race is in front of the Youth Center (Disco Club Piccadilly). Men’s teams, women’s teams, and mixed teams can participate in the competition. The maximum number of teams are the first 30 who applied, while anyone who applied after is placed as a reserve in the event one of the top 30 teams drops out. The time limit to finish the race is 14 hours.

The race begins at 7:00, and the organizer reserves the right to change the race start time if necessary.

The technical meeting will take place the day before the race from 17:10 to 19:00 (with starter packages included in this meeting), and the venue will be sent to all contestants by e-mail later.

In addition to the Cetina Adventure Race, the Cetina Adventure Club is also organizing the City Challenge Cetina Adventure, where everyone can participate, regardless of age and fitness.

The challenge is designed in such a way that, with the help of a map and directions, the participants should find the default points for the city of Sinj. The City Challenge can be finished in 30 minutes, and it can also be done in a limited time of 2 hours. The concept is simple: everyone is invited to have fun and get to know the hidden locations of the city under Kamičak. A good time in good company is guaranteed!

The City Challenge will be held on June 2nd. Start and finish is in front of the Youth Center (Disco Club Piccadilly). The track is about 8 kilometers long and can be done in categories for adults (women and men) and for children (1. children up to 7 years, 2. children 7 to 10 years, 3. children 10 to 13 years, 4 children from 13 to 16 years). The maximum number of participants is 500 and the time limit for the race is 2 hours.

The race begins at 17:00, and the organizer reserves the right to change the race start time if necessary. The technical meeting will take place an hour before the start, at 16:00.
