Test your endurance by participating a stair climbing race on the centuries old Trsat Stairways,
It begins on the banks of the Rječina, beside a bank building, and leads up to the plateau at 138 m above sea level. There are 561 steps in all, and they were built for pilgrims on their way to the votive church. Work was started on them in 1531 by Petar Kružić, hero of battles against the Turks, who built the lower part of the stairway, later expanded to 538 steps. The Baroque entrance hall in the form of a triumphal arch was built in the first half of the 18th century, and the votive chapels on the level ground near the church by the steps, between the 15th and the 18th centuries, one chapel each century.
Our race "539 jump" is one the most difficult endurance tests one can afford to try. The goal is simple, just try to run (or jump) as fast as you can up the 539 stairs to the top plateau.

Molo longo Run
A race on the beautiful breakwater,
The current Breakwater in the main port basin is known as "molo longo" due to its 1707 m length. It is used as a passenger terminal and promenade. The construction plans and preparations for the Breakwater began in 1872 and it was completed in 1888. It was named Molo Maria Teresa after the Empress for her historic influence on the development of the city. It was planned to be an administrative centre for Hungary by the Hungarian architect Antal Hajnal. More historical informations about Molo longo are available here.
For the "Molo longo run" athletes will need to run two times the length (cca 6 km).
If you’re a team player and wish to test yourself at the half-marathon race course, relay is your thing! Find two of your friends and run as a team on the half marathon course! Each of you will have a 7 km run. The ever-popular relay will again reveal the best team. Sponsors will take care that first three teams return home with some valuable prizes.
