Mountain Madness is coming to Hvar!
Today the SHH team walked the designated route for Mountain Madness that is planned to take place in the city of Hvar in October. Mountain Madness is a mountain adventure, a race designed to challenge your strength and endurance, but also elevate your skill, speed and ability to overcome the various obstacles awaiting you on the 7-km long track, regardless of weather conditions.
The first Mountain Madness took place in Ravna Gora, Gorski Kotar where it was a great success. Mountain Madness is more than just a fitness challenge; something that you can't experience every day and it cannot be compared to trail running or cross-country. The race can be as hard as you want it to be. Someone will choose a quicker pace, whilst others a slower one. Since the main factor is to tackle every obstacle – what’s the rush? The goal is to bring young people to a healthy and active life accompanied by good fun.
The island of Hvar makes the perfect location for such a race. Not only is the island of Hvar blessed with stunning landscapes and excellent climate it also boasts excellent tracks for running that are outlined through the entire island. The start of the race is planned at the main Hvar square, with the route taking you up the stairs towards the Španjola fortress, through vineyards towards Pokonji dol beach where you will continue by the sea side towards the finish line, also at the main square.
Stay tuned for more info in the upcoming months, but for now check out some of the amazing sights our SHH team experienced while walking the route!
