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



This service pack was designed to meet the demands of all types of run promoters. We handle the entire project and apply our vast knowledge and experience with the ideal of turning your vision into reality. We also offer assistance with developing any segment of organizing a running event.


By taking part in the biggest regional and global running events, Run Croatia provides its sponsorship partners with impressive media coverage via traditional platforms such as television, print and radio, and across digital platforms such as online portals, social media channels and apps.


This service pack is dedicated to all runners: amateurs and pros, those who run long and those who run short tracks, those with thousands and thousands of kilometers under their feet, and those who are just taking their first steps. We’re here to make running in Croatia, the region and across the world easier. We want for your running experience to be an unforgettable one.


Volunteering means giving without asking for something in return. Run Croatia was built on togetherness and the ideals of helping communities grow. Since 2015, we have had more than 300 volunteers helping others reach their goals while getting stronger, healthier and happier.

Much respect to you, this was the best race in the Balkans that I have ever attended. I particularly appreciate the way everything was organized and how you took care of us runners. See you next year!

Marko Magdić

The Cross Hill race was an idea my friend Dalibor and I came up with one summer morning while we were on holiday. It didn’t take us too long to develop the concept and details of the race and make it what it is now…

When it comes to this amazing experience, I don’t know what to point out first: an evening party in May, taking a boat ride with a live band onboard, a difficult but beautiful race - and all this came together thanks to our great hosts.
