Just as Zagreb has the Zagreb Advent Run, so Zadar has its own race - the Zadar Christmas Run.
Zadar Christmas Run 2021 is a sports event organized as part of Advent in Zadar. In its first edition in 2019, it generated huge interest and 600 runners registered for the race. The Zadar Christmas Run is a 5km sports Christmas race which will start on 26th December at 4pm from Puntamika (marina Borik) with finish in the city center on Advent. Runners will get the red Christmas caps and red T-shirts so the road from Puntamika to Advent will be painted in the red colors of Christmas.
The main cause of Zadar Christmas Run is to popularize Christmas activities in the city of Zadar, also to promote sport, recreational running and a healthy lifestyle. And most important, it is a humanitarian race. Part of the proceeds from the applications for the Zadar Christmas Run race will be donated to the Pediatric Department of the Zadar General Hospital. It will be one fun sports - Christmas Sunday in Zadar!
