Are you in for a blood pumping physical challenge? The 1st Marjanska Skalinada takes place on April 1, 2013 starting at 11 am. This running event is a vertical marathon on the Marjan peninsula where you will start at 1m altitude and ascend 819 steps, spanning 1320m, reaching the summit of Telegrin at 178m about sea level.

The race starts at the bottom of the Tomica Stine stairs near Matejuska west of Riva. Runners will start at 30 second intervals in order to avoid crowding. Arrows will guide you on your route, first past Prva Vidilica, the belvedere by the Vidilica Cafe and Jewish Cemetary. You will continue up the steep path and climb ancient staircases wedged into the side of Marjan hill leading you to the flagged summit of Marjan at the finish line.

If this sounds like a challenge you are up for, you need to fill out your application latest by March 22, 2013 on www.maraton.hr and get to Prva Vidilica four days prior to the race, on Thursday March 28 to pick up your number and chips at 19:30.
