Marjanska Skalinda: A Vertical Marathon on April 1st

Written by  Tuesday, 19.3.2013. 08:39:01

Are you in for a blood pumping physical challenge? The 1st Marjanska Skalinada takes place on April 1, 2013 starting at 11 am. This running event is a vertical marathon on the Marjan peninsula where you will start at 1m altitude and ascend 819 steps, spanning 1320m, reaching the summit of Telegrin at 178m about sea level.

The race starts at the bottom of the Tomica Stine stairs near Matejuska west of Riva. Runners will start at 30 second intervals in order to avoid crowding. Arrows will guide you on your route, first past Prva Vidilica, the belvedere by the Vidilica Cafe and Jewish Cemetary. You will continue up the steep path and climb ancient staircases wedged into the side of Marjan hill leading you to the flagged summit of Marjan at the finish line.

If this sounds like a challenge you are up for, you need to fill out your application latest by March 22, 2013 on and get to Prva Vidilica four days prior to the race, on Thursday March 28 to pick up your number and chips at 19:30. If you are unable to come on this day, you can collect them on race day between 9:00-10:30.

A passion for food, wine and the sea, combined with Croatian roots brought Mila to Split in September last year. With a Danish father, Croatian mother and a childhood in Dubai, Mila certainly has an international outlook, and one which she has developed in the food and wine business. A degree in International Hospitality Management led to a job in marketing for the prestigious Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, as well as being part of the pre-opening team for Le Meridien Lav in Split. Mila's passion for wine also comes with some academic and business credentials, having worked in the wine import industry and being the owner of an advanced wine certification. Her volunteer writing for the Taste of Croatia team and research for Lonely Planet has led to an intimate knowledge of the Split culinary and tourism scene, while her sailing, kitesurfing and golfing interests will bring great variety to the Total Split site. She has been welcomed aboard with the FRAPA Women's Sailing Team where skipper Tihana Tadinac and the rest of the crew is teaching her to sail. Contact Mila on with any Split events, insider news or wine invitations.
