Croatia 5 January: Ston

Running along a wall

Utrka na stonskim zidinama

Today we hosted a Peace Race in Ston, a village and municipality in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County of Croatia.

Današnji domaćin Utrke Mira je Ston, gradić i općina u Dubrovačko-neretvanskoj županiji.

The race took place along the streets and walls in the city.

Utrak se održala po ulicama i zidinama grada.

The Great Wall outside the town has a circumference of 5 km and part of the race took place upon this majestic wall.

Stonske zidine izvan grada dugačke su 5km i dio trke odvijao se na tim veličanstvenim zidinama.

Drsalu, from Austria, was proud to find himself on the poster promoting the race.

As you can see it is quite steep.

Kao što vidite prilično je strmo.

Overtaking on this part of the course was not easy.

Prestizanje na ovom dijelu rute nije bilo lako.

Finally onto flat ground.

Končno na ravnom tlu.

Lots of refreshments for the finishers.
