Yesterday on the island of Hvar a 22 km half-marathon took a place, starting from Stari Grad and finishing in Hvar Town. The first half of the race was uphill with an elevation of up to 400 m above sea level, and then back down, following the coast line and giving the runners amazing sea views complete with sunset. Every kilometre was marked, with water stations at 5, 10 and 15km. There was great participation in this second half-marathon,with 108 registered runners and even our Hvar Adventure skipper, Riccardo Kuhar, went for it. He completed the race in 1 hour and 47 minutes, and as the finish line was set up right in the middle of the town centre, every runner got a large clapping ovation from people watching the race in all the surrounding cafe bars.

After the race, dinner and award ceremony took place in restaurant “Delfin” in Hvar town. We hope to keep this race a tradition and have its good vibes going for manz more years, and as the slogan of the race said, “For Run For Fun!”.
