Numerous sports and active holiday lovers will find enough reasons to come to Istria even in the winter months, but the first days of spring brings the sixth edition of the ultra trail race 100 miles of Istria. From 2016, 100 Miles of Istria is a part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour (UTWT), a collection of the greatest ultra-trail races around the globe.
The 100 miles course is the hardest and the most beautiful course, it stretches from the eastern part of Istria, over its highest mountain down to the mainland, and ends on the western part of the peninsula in the city of Umag. Along the route you will experience every possible aspect of trail running - really technical terrain, a little bit of coastering, old medieval towns, deep forests, city centres, old train route, muddy valleys, all spiced up with breath-taking panoramas.
The first course starts in the 3000 years old town Labin, climbs the Učka mountain and descends in Buzet. The trail leads you afterwards to the smallest town in the world, the town of Hum, then to the medieval pearl Motovun and back to the finish in Umag.
The second largest course offers you “the climb”, right in the beginning, from the sea level directly to the top of the Učka mountain. Reaching the foot of the mountain peak, the 109 km trail merges with the 100 miles trail until Buzet. From Buzet, the trail leads you towards Oprtalj. Before you reach Umag you will have to climb mountains, cross the stream but you’ll also see the ruins of the Pietrapelosa castle.
The third race, 67 kilometres long trail is an excellent start for participants as well as the fourth race which is quite a novelty and is dedicated to beginners in trail running.
The finish of all the races and the centre of events will be in Umag where Ledo 1 mile children race will be held.

During the walk, you will stop at four famous local wineries to taste their Momjan Muškat or other great wines paired with young cheese, walnuts and honey, a traditional Istrian platter, pljukanci pasta with herbs from Vale, and a traditional Istrian cake.
On this fun hike, you will also enjoy the sounds of Mediaeval music near the old fortress in Momjan, as well as works of art at the gallery of local artist Silvia Cindrić.
For the perfect end to this exciting event, a party with live music will await you at the last stop.
Earth Day will again be celebrated in Novigrad with the Novigrad Eco Day event.
Everybody who wishes to do so can join an environmental clean-up campaign that kicks off in the morning at a number of locations throughout the town, from the beaches, promenades and woods to the seabed in the town harbour.
Once their work is done – a symbolic and concrete contribution to a more beautiful and cleaner Novigrad – all participants of Novigrad Eco Day will continue socialising at an outdoor get-together and open-air luncheon hosted by the event organisers.
It will also be a day on which we will, if only briefly, reflect on how important it is to care for our environment, how important our relationship with the natural world is and how important our only common home, our planet Earth, is.
Easter celebration with a special entertainment program
With a symbolic gift in the sweet scents and flavours of the most important Christian holiday, Novigrad will once again send a warm welcome to its dear guests on the streets of the old town centre before a musical backdrop coloured with traditional melodies and tones.
On Easter Morning, on some of the streets of the old town centre, on the seaside promenade, at Mandrač harbour, or even on some of the sunny terraces, we will surprise our guests with a special gift, raise their spirits with music, give them our best holiday greetings, and of course, wish them a beautiful, restful holiday full of fun and good times in our town, and invite them to visit Novigrad again in the months to come...
