Hvar half-marathon 29th June!

Take part in an unforgettable race on one of the most beautiful islands in the world! This is the 9th year in a row that the Hvar half marathon will take place, starting in Stari Grad, with the finish in the city of Hvar.

Discover centuries old history, beautiful island nature and enjoy stunning views of island Brač and beyond. This year the participants are from all over the world; USA, UK and Italy to name a few, with over 50 participants already registered for the race! The beginning of the half marathon is on the square Ploče, the city of Stari Grad, and the first half of the race is a climb up to around 400 m above sea level, while the other half descends again to the sea towards the city of Hvar. The water stations are at 5km, 10km and 15km. 

So now there’s one more reason to come to Hvar; also known as For in local dialect. The race motto sums this up nicely – FOR RUN FOR FUN – have fun with a run, or a have a run with a fun, or just have a run – because having fun is guaranteed on the island of Hvar. 

You can apply HERE.

The connection to the island with mainland is much better than in the past two years, with companies Krilo and Jadrolinija presenting much more frequent catamaran lines with daily departures from Split to Hvar and vice versa. Half marathon participants will also be able to take the last ferry departing at 23:00 o’clock from Stari Grad in the evening after the award ceremony.
