The 100 miles course is the hardest and the most beautiful course offered. It stretches from the eastern part of Istria, over its highest mountain down to the mainland, and ends on the western part of the peninsula in the city of Umag. Along the route you will experience every possible aspect of trail running – really technical terrain, a little bit of coastering, old medieval towns, deep forests, city centres, old train route, muddy valleys, all spiced up with breath taking panoramas.
100 Miles of Istria is a trail race consisting of 4 courses. The Red is a 100 mile course, undoubtedly the most gruelling yet most rewarding. The Blue course is 108km, Green 69km and lastly the Yellow 42km.
The course starts in the 3000 years old town Labin, climbs the Učka mountain and descends in Buzet where your drop bag will wait for you. After the well-deserved rest, the trail leads you to the smallest town in the world, the town of Hum, then to the medieval pearl Motovun and back to the finish in Umag. 173 km with 6.230 m doesn’t seem so hard but trust us, this course is very demanding and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
