Paklenica National Park is well-known european climbing site, but varied terrain and landscape, and over 150K of marked trails ranks this park among the most attractive areas for fans of running and mountaineering.
A race for all those who want to see the best of Paklenica. Trail includes the Mala Paklenica canyon, a ridge streching from Sv. Brdo to Vaganski peak and continues through the Velika Paklenica canyon to the finish line in Starigrad Paklenica.
One of the attractive parts of the race is the Mala Paklenica canyon which requires walking with occasional use of hands (easy scrambling on few sections) and is not recommended for those who are afraid of the height.
Competitors registered in this category are expected to have real adventure, but this is why it is tailored exclusively to runners with excellent physical condition and experience in ultra lengths.
This year’s version of the GREEN category, although slightly longer with more elevation is actually lighter and easier than last year’s. The most attractive part of this category is the Mala Paklenica canyon which requires walking with occasional use of hands (easy scrambling on few sections) and is not recommended for those who are afraid of the height.
From the Mala Paklenica canyon, the trail takes you through the beech forests and descends to the mountain hut and further through the Velika Paklenica canyon. The whole trail besides the Mala Paklenica canyon is great for running.
This category fits to runners in better physical condition with running experience.
