Our story goes back to 2015 when three dedicated athletes who share a passion for running got together and decided to start promoting events. It didn’t take them long to find partners in Croatia and around the globe: race clubs, cities and towns, sponsors and others who trust in the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle. We’re friends with humanitarian organizations, sports clubs, local communities and entrepreneurs who believe sports activities can be enjoyed by everyone.

Today, Run Croatia organizes high-quality racing events in the region and around the world. Running is a constantly growing trend, with more than 50 million Europeans running regularly and spending about 9.6 billion Euros annually on their active pastime. In just a couple of years, we have grown into a movement that brings people together and can serve as an influential promotional platform for our partners.


We share common goals that benefit individuals and communities.
  • promote Croatian tourism and individual destinations
  • develop engaging content that prolongs the tourist season
  • create a representative brand for Croatian tourism
  • educate others about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle
  • encourage social responsibility
