PORTLAND, Ore. – The Dubrovnik International Half Marathon & 2k Run the Wall, both inaugural events, and first of their kind in Dubrovnik, Croatia, will be held in May 2015 with registration opening this month.
Next Events Productions expect the event to sell out quickly as registration for the Half Marathon is limited to just 1,000 entries, and the 2k Run the Wall Event to just 50 entries.
Dubrovnik, located on the Adriatic Sea, is recognized as one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean with its turquoise waters, intimate lodging and delicious fare. As a medieval walled city, Dubrovnik is steeped in stunning architecture and sculptural detail, the has been the set of TV shows including the popular HBO series, “Game of Thrones.”
Organizers have created a fun Half Marathon course depicting the best of Dubrovnik. Participants will experience spectacular views of the old town and harbor, and finish down the historic Stradun, the main street of Dubrovnik. This limestone-paved pedestrian street runs through the Old Town, the historic part of the city surrounded by the Walls of Dubrovnik. The day before the Half Marathon, adventurous participants can challenge the 2k Run the Wall, as they run across the top of the series of stone walls constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries, that have surrounded and protected the city throughout history.
These new events are produced by Next Events Productions, along with the City of Dubrovnik and in association with the Portland Marathon, a sister event in Portland, Oregon.
