Istria Granfondo 2020
Save the dates 16 – 18 October 2020 and sign up for the Istria Granfondo international cycling marathon. The ninth edition of the marathon with the start and finish line in Umag and Novigrad will offer an even richer program this year.
If you are up for a real challenge, choose between the two routes for the bold and physically fit riders – 94 km long route of Istria Granfondo Small and 119 km long route of Istria Granfondo Classic. Both will take place on Saturday, 17 October 2020, in Umag. They pass through the northwestern and central parts of the Istrian peninsula, and return to Umag. In order to catch your breath on the way, we have prepared 4 refreshment stops. Both races start and finish in the beautiful Stella Maris Resort, just next to the Goran Ivanišević ATP stadium in Umag. Race numbers will be available for pick up from Friday 16 October 2020.
While staying in Istria, you may also choose to participate in our Istria Granfondo Family & Gourmet Tour organised on Sunday 18 October 2020. This recreational MTB tour will take you on a 25 km long ride around Novigrad and its surroundings, along the coast, olive groves and vineyards. Cyclists will enjoy the beautiful views while tastings Istrian dishes at the refreshment stop and the finish line. Entry fees for this tour will be available on the spot.
The marathon that brought together as many as 700 cyclists from 15 countries, more than 300 members in the organization team, 150 volunteers as well as members of various cycling teams, this year has 77 prizes in store for the best cyclists in addition to valuable prizes for male and female winners.
