The 22nd edition of Split marathon will take place on 27 February, and about 2,750 runners from 40 countries are expected to participate, the organisers said last Wednesday.
“Preparation for the 22nd Split marathon are nearing completion,” the president of the marathon’s organising committee, Kristijan Sidik, told a press conference.
He said that he was proud that the continuity of the Split marathon hadn’t been lost even during these challenging times, which was a rarity in the world.
Split Mayor Ivica Puljak said that the marathon had become an event of strategic importance for the development of the city of Split, calling it a unique sporting and tourism event that promotes all those values which they are known for and which they are proud of.
He said that the City of Split, its services and utility companies would provide their maximum support to make the organisation flawless and to make the competitors coming to the city feel welcome.
“The marketing and tourist potential of the marathon is exceptional, the athletes are also our guests, and in the future we will strengthen the brand of Split as a city of sport and sportspeople even more,” said Puljak.
