An increasingly popular sport - running along natural, unpaved paths, better known as trail, is slowly expanding the club of devotees all over our coast. The island of Brač, which last year had its 1st edition of the Brač Trail race organized by the Tourist Board of Supetar and Postira and the Trekking League, was added to the list of Adriatic locations that organize this increasingly popular form of recreation.
The Brač trail reveals the most beautiful and wild corners of this impressive island. The race, which takes place on May 20, runs along the Vidova Gora plateau, which rises to 778m/m, which makes it the highest mountain of the Adriatic islands and one of the most beautiful viewpoints on the Adriatic. It has a shape of an elongated karst ridge stretching along the southern coast of Brač. The sides of this ridge are entirely different. The southern face descends steeply, with cliffs sloping into the sea towards the town of Bol. The northern face is a karst highland mild slope of some ten kilometres of width. This highland is for the most part covered with scarce shrubland and Mediterranean macchia and the area of Kneževravni under Vidova Gora is populated with black pinewood. This vast highland covers more than half of the island, it is entirely deserted and uninhabited.
The race takes place in 3 categories: 7 km (Light), 15 km (Active) or 25 km (Challenger) on beautiful forested paths on Vidova Gora above 600 m above sea level. Dense pine forests and ridges of Vidova Gora and a beautiful panoramic view of dozens of islands are the main features of this trail. The start and finish of the race is located in the picturesque ethnic village of Gažul, which delights with its beauty and autochthonous gastronomic offer. After the race, all participants will enjoy an evening concert on the waterfront in Supetar.
All adrenaline seekers, adventurers, hedonists, head to the island of Brač! Feel the true power of nature through the magical pine forests, along the paths that lead to the highest peak of the Adriatic Sea. Enjoy the island's excellent gastronomic offer and unforgettable fun.
