Tesla  trail is a sport event and a part of the festival ” Tesla in Lika ” , organized by Hana Tours. The aim of the festival is to promote the region Lika as a destination of sports and innovators in Croatia, as well as in Europe and its region.

As  jogging is becoming more  popular as a recreational activity, we have decided to organise a race in  which competitors of all ages are welcome , from the youngest members to professional sportspeople. We have prepared two routes for you , a 9km route called ” Merala trail ”  and a 17 km route called  ” Božur trail ” . The routes  were given names according to some less familiar plants that are present in the Nature Park Velebit, which can be seen along the routes.

Transport is organised from Zagreb to the start of the race , as well as  the return to Zagreb , for the first  30 competitors that confirm their participation at the race and register their need for transport from  Zagreb ,  on this e-mail address :  sakfitzazivot @gmail.com.

MERALA TRAIL 9 km ( + 600 / -600 M)
