Sports events in Istria
Another exciting road cycling event Istria Granfondo is just around the corner. This year the event will last from 06 October to 8 October. The cyclists are in for 3 days of amazing bike rides, and those who enjoy cycling as recreation will be able to take part in a new activity – a guided tour Wine & Bike Sea Tour scheduled for Friday 06 October.
Note the dates 06.10. - 8.10. 2017. and sign up for the international cycling marathon Istria Granfondo. The sixth edition of the marathon with the start and finish line in Umag and Novigrad will offer an even richer program this year.
The real challenge comes on Saturday, in Umag, on the routes for the bold and physically fit. Choose between the 88 km long route of Istria Granfondo Small and 128 km long route of Istria Granfondo Classic.
On Sunday, Istria Granfondo Family & Gourmet Tour will take you on a 25 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.
Aminess Hotels and Campsites will once again be organising a fun race this year. After last year's premiere edition, this year's race will be even bigger and better, offering new routes that are longer and more challenging.
Register for our short 6km race, which is perfect for enthusiasts, or find the ideal partner and run a relay together – because everything is better in twos. If you have a bit more running experience under your belt, register for the half marathon and measure off against competitors from various countries.
Momian MTB marathon will take place in Momian, at 11 a.m. on November 12, to celebrate the day of the patron saint of Momian, St. Martin.
Since St. Martin is the patron saint of wine makers and wine growers, young wine is baptised on this day in many countries and regions.
The bicycle ride will start at the entrance to Momian, and participation fee is 40 kuna.
Participants will have lunch in a tent in Momjan, and refreshment will be available throughout the trail. A lottery is scheduled after lunch.
