About the Event
Dear runners, marathon runners, recreationists and professionals!
We present to you a unique running specialty – the unforgettable race along the Ston Walls!
Whether you are a tough marathon runner in search of a new challenge or recreationist going over his limits and running for pleasure, this is the right race for you!
You can choose your own challenge: 4 km, 15 km, or 42 km – in each of them you will find yourselves in front of the wall – and not just any, the longest fortified walls in Europe!
But for you, it will not be an obstacle but a magnificent arena for an unforgettable race! You will be climbing on its steep steps from Mali Ston to crenelated stone towers and fortresses, jump while descending towards packed Ston roofs, at the same time enjoying the views which literally take the breath away: to the reflecting surface of the oldest European salt works, to the fertile green fields and the bluest sea on the planet…
The shortest race ends in Ston, and those more courageous will run along the slim dam between the salt works and the sea to the South, the very heel of Pelješac, into the wild realm of the Mediterranean forest and jackals. Their finish is on the way back to Ston, while marathon runners continue farther, through the fertile Ston fields to the coasts of Mali Ston bay, crammed with reach sea đardini…
Accept the challenge and run this saucy marathon with a grain of salt. You may forget the result, but you will remember Ston forever!
