Time to dust off your running shoes, it’s that time of year again!
As DuList reports on the 6th of September, 2017, owing to the current favourable climate conditions and the hard work of a whole series of athletics enthusiasts, Dubrovnik has become one of the most popular Mediterranean racing destinations in the past few years, suitable for all-year sports events and active holidays. This year, the Dubrovnik Akvatlon (Aquathlon) League has been introduced, the first multisport event in the region, scheduled for Sunday, the 1st of October, 2017.
This is one of a series of popular globally growing attractions which promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle. It is an excellent way to enter into the world of athletics and sport for beginners, and a quality notch to the belts of more experienced athletes.
The Dubrovnik Aquathlon 2017 Recreation Race: Earth, Sea & Fire is a great opportunity to compete alongside many successful Croatian triathletes. The race includes 1000m of sea swimming, and after the transition, 5000m of running (Sveti Jakov). The start is at Banje beach at 15:00.
All interested parties can sign up through the RaceCollector portal. The starting cost is 100kn for competitors who hold a Croatian Triathlon Federation license and 150kn for the unlicensed. The initial package includes a t-shirt, a souvenir, promo material, a bag and more. The best contestants are judged in categories of age and gender. Du Motion’s Dubrovnik Aquathlon will attract athletes and recreationalists from over 40 countries worldwide and is supported by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, the Dubrovnik Sports Association and the City of Dubrovnik.
