KRKA Ultra Challenge is an international charity trail running race created to appeal to a wide audience – from the most experienced runners to the joyful runners – with the objective that you will be up for a challenge & push your limits for a good cause, regardless which distance you choose! The environment is in & around the magnificent Krka National Park & the routes follow the Krka river passing several impressive landmarks, viewpoints & waterfalls before finishing at the beach of the beautiful town Skradin.
Charity & running is a well-known perfect match – KRKA Ultra Challenge will use the human goodwill to raise money for Diabetes, with the payoff: #Run4Diabetes
By doing this we also want to raise awareness of this dangerous disease growing exponentially across the globe, by engaging & activating people! In all our communication we will use the hashtags #Run4Diabetes & #KrkaUltra, which we also strongly encourage all participants to also use when sharing posts on social media!
Come run with us to help raise money for diabetes charity – everything associated with KRKA Ultra Challenge contribute (part of entry fee, sponsors, booking of accommodation/activities thru the website etc.)! The objective is to raise >100.000 SEK (€ 10.000) this the 2nd year of our event. The raised funds will support both Barndiabetesfonden (The Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation), as well as our own initiative – a sports camp in Skradin for Swedish families with children suffering from type 1 diabetes (see “#Run4Diabetes” for more info).
Krka National Park lies within Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River. The closest city is Skradin, located along the coast between Split & Zadar in Croatia.
