Note the dates 10 and 11 October 2015 and sign up for the international cycling marathon Istria Granfondo. The fourth edition of the race with the start and finish line in Umag and Novigrad will offer an even richer program this year.

On Saturday, Istria Granfondo Family & Gourmet Tour will take you on a 30 km long recreational ride around Novigrad and its surroundings, along the shore, through olive groves and vineyards. Cyclists over the age of 10 will enjoy the views and tastings of Istrian dishes at the refreshment stops.

The real challenge comes the day after, in Umag, on the routes for the bold and physically fit. Choose between the 84 km long route of Istria Granfondo Small and 161 km long route of Istria Granfondo Classic, the most part of which was included in the 14th lap of the famous Giro d'Italia in 2004.
Granfondo Classic passes through the central part of the Istrian peninsula, through Buzet, Cerovlje and Pazin and returns to Northwest Istria. Both races start and finish in the beautiful Stella Maris Resort, just next to the ATP stadium in Umag. In order to catch your breath on the way, we have prepared a total of 6 refreshment stops.

The race that brought together as many as 750 cyclists from 10 different countries, more than 300 members in the organization team, 150 volunteers as well as members of various cycling teams in 2014, this year has 100 prizes in store for the best cyclists and 20 prizes for the most numerous teams.

The rich accompanying program of 2015 offers well-known bicycle brands in the Expo zone, a children's program, Zumba kids, a bike balance competition, a fashion show and most importantly - great atmosphere.
