Running is an excellent way to explore the ancient town of Split and the amazing Marjan hill with its lush Mediterranean forest. The tour starts at Golden gate of the palace – a perfect setting for a morning run. As you run, our guide will share with you interesting facts about the city history and anecdotes so it is an excellent way to get a true feel of Split. Pace of the run is usually between 5.30 – 6.00 min/km but we can adjust our pace to some extent.
