DAY 1 – the 21st September 2018

We’ll be waiting for you in Dubrovnik. Let us know how you are travelling (by bus, by plane, by car, on foot?), and at what time you’ll be arriving. We need you to arrive by 4.00 pm at the latest. Upon your arrival, we’ll be transferred by bus to Ston. We’ll show you to your apartment for two or three nights located in a private house. And then we’ll have our first runners’ dinner.

DAY 2 – the 22nd September 2018

You’ll find your breakfast in a bag hanging on your door. ☺ In the apartment, there’s a kitchenette where you’ll find everything to make coffee or tea. After breakfast, we’ll familiarize ourselves with the route and the surroundings where you’ll run the following day. We’ll show you Ston. You’ll hear the story about the salt marshes, we’ll walk through the patchwork of streets, climb the walls and walk the Big Wall. In Mali Ston, we’ll have a runners’ lunch and taste the rare Ston oyster, a gastronomic delicacy offered only in the most prestigious restaurants. In the afternoon, we have to pick up our running numbers and bags. And in the evening, there is a pasta party in Ston for all participants.

DAY 3 – the 23rd September 2018

This is your day. The race starts at 7.00 am. We’ll be there to cheer you on. When we see you passing, we’ll jump and yell: You can do it!. The truth is that you can. We’ll be waiting for you at the finishing line.

After the race, you’ll be on cloud nine. We would like to see you dancing. Are you hungry? How about some pasta? A runners’ lunch will be organised in the main square.

If you are leaving after the race, we’ll organize your transfer. Thank you for running with us. Thank you for laughing with us. And thank you for spreading the word about the Ston Wall Marathon.
If you are staying until Monday, join us on an excursion to Korčula, a medieval town located on the island of the same name. We’ll ride on the bus through the vineyards, the serene hamlets, and the ravishing landscapes of the Pelješac Peninsula. Then we’ll take a boat to cross the 1,270 metre wide channel between the mainland and the island. Korčula is the birth place of Marco Polo. If you don’t believe it, it’s all right. After our story, you’ll believe it anyway! ☺ The town is laid out in the shape of fish bone. We’ll explore the town, eat traditional sweet pastries watching the sunset, and then we’ll have a runners’ dinner.
