Sinj Trail: Round 6 of Dalmatian Trail League Moves to Sinj Next Month!

Daniela Rogulj


Aprill 29, 2019 – After last year’s highly successful race, which was attended by more than 250 runners from several European countries, the sports club Cetina Adventure again invites all nature lovers, runners, recreationalists, the old and young, walking enthusiasts and really, anyone interested to join the competition on May 11, 2019!

This year’s race has three length categories: Bara category (11 kilometers), category Čoja (22 kilometers) and, for the most courageous, the Alka category, which is 33 kilometers long.

Category Details:

Category Bara: With a length of 11 kilometers (390 meters uphill), the Bara passes near all the major sights and is intended for walkers, families, and recreation, as well as anyone who wants to try trail running for the first time. The race starts in front of the church of Our Lady of Sinj, continues to the end of the beautiful Alkar courtyard and the asphalt road climbs to the Old Town and to the church of St. Michael. Descending, the trail leads to a wide macadam path and ascends to the lungs of the town of Sinj, Pavića Nebesa. It passes along the entire length of Pavića Nebesa through the beautiful pine and oak forests and continues to the northern side of Pavića Nebesa on a wide macadam path towards the finish. The track is circular, not technically demanding and is entirely marked by signs, mountaineering markings, and strips. 


Category Čoja: With a length of 22 kilometers (1000 meters uphill) the Čoja begins the same way as the Bara trail, up to the crossing at Lučane, whereupon it continues on asphalt road one kilometer to the entrance to the protected landscape of Sutina and climbs to the highest peak, Visošnica (907 m ). Up to the top, the trail is marked. From the top of Visošnica, on a broad macadam route, it descends to the Sutina Canyon, through Perjanica and one of the most beautiful parts of the Sinj region, passing the mountain stream Sutina almost from the spring to the return to Pavića Nebesa and the finish. The track is circular, marked with mountaineering markings, strips, and signposts for the direction of movement. It is intended for experienced competitors and recreationalists.


Category Alka: With a length of 33 kilometers and an ascent of 1700 meters, the Alka starts just like the first two categories, and halfway at Pavića Nebesa, it separates on a wide macadam path and climbs to the most beautiful view of the town of Sinj on top of Visoka (896 m). It continues on a demanding hiking trail to the top of Visošnica, from where it descends into the Sutina Canyon. The Sutina Canyon is on the left side and from the canyon, it climbs to its northern peak Bukovac, from which it looks towards Visoka, the Kamešnica, the Dinara and Svilaja. From the peak of Bukovac it goes all the way along the direction of Svilaja to the Kačar area. It is again connected to the technically demanding downhill of Plišivica from where it flows into Lučane and moves towards the finish on a wide macadam path. The trail is also circular, marked with mountaineering markings, strips, and signposts. It is intended for experienced competitors and recreationalists.
