Big Sport event in Zagreb -Zagreb Marathon 13.10.2019.

Last Saturday, 13th October 2019. Zagreb was flooded with flocks of more than 6200 runners from all over the world, from all 6 continents, from more than 72 countries. It was crazy, it was fantastic! When it started 28 years ago 1992, we only had around 1000 runners and only 70 made it to the finish and it this 70 and 4 of them were females now it is a totally different picture. Zagreb has become destination visited by tourists anyway, but that day it felt that we had 100 time more. Zagreb rulles! People all colours and races were having fun. I had a city tour and it was challenge to get to the city as close as possible and cross the tram rails at the Main Square of Ban Josip Jelačić but we managed somehow, regulation was amassing so as the organisation. In three races with over 6200 logged runners, they run over 100,000 kilometres, drunk over 20,000 bottles of water, eat 5,000 servings of beans stews and 3,000 kilograms of fruit. I know few people myself who were participating in the race, me …. sorry guys I am walking kind of girl….running is not my thing 🙂
