Total Croatia News

Peter Thompson, the British runner who we wrote about here, successfully finished his marathon in Zagreb accompanied by a group of fellow runners, reports Run Zagreb on Sunday, April 16th 2017.

After running a marathon in Sarajevo the day before, Peter took a night bus to Zagreb and managed to get 4 hours of sleep, then proceeded to put on his sneakers and master the 42-kilometre distance. His route took him from Novi Zagreb to the centre, then all the way to Jarun and along the Sava embankment, with the finish line waiting for him in Bundek park. He ran the marathon in 3 hours and 58 minutes.

The running community in Zagreb is pretty special, stated Peter on his Facebook page, thanking the Run Zagreb association for their help and support during the event.

At the time this article was written, Peter has already finished the marathon in Ljubljana and has arrived in Vienna, where he is to run on Wednesday, April 18th. This will be the 18th marathon of the 44 he’s running across 44 countries in 44 consecutive days. His goal is to raise funds for two mental health charities and to inspire people to be more open about this subject.

You can follow his project called Marathons for the Mind on Facebook and on the official website.
