Stella Maris Resort, Umag, Croatia

Note the dates 16. - 18. October 2020 and sign up for the international cycling marathon Istria Granfondo. The ninth edition of the marathon with the start and finish line in Umag and Novigrad will offer an even richer program this year.

The real challenge comes on Saturday, in Umag, on the routes for the bold and physically fit. Choose between the 94 km long route of Istria Granfondo Small and 119 km long route of Istria Granfondo Classic. Granfondo Classic passes through the central part of the Istrian peninsula, and returns to Northwest Istria. Both races start and finish in the beautiful Stella Maris Resort, just next to the ATP stadium in Umag. In order to catch your breath on the way, we have prepared a total of 4 refreshment stops.

On Sunday, Istria Granfondo Family & Gourmet Tour will take you on a 25 km long recreational ride around Novigrad and its surroundings, along the shore, through olive groves and vineyards. Cyclists will enjoy the views and tastings of Istrian dishes at the refreshment stops.

The marathon that brought together as many as 700 cyclists from 15 different 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.

The rich accompanying program of 2020 offers well-known bicycle brands in the Expo zone, a children's program, a bike balance competition, Wine & Bike Sea Tour, rich gourmet offer and most importantly - great atmosphere.
