In the month of October we proudly present the Učka Vertical mountain race from Medveja to the peak of Vojak. The 7.67 km long route starts in Medveja and follows a marked hiking trail through the village of Lovranska Draga to Vojak, the highest peak of Mount Učka (1,396 metres above the sea). This route is ideal for all those who like to walk or run as a training for competitions or just for recreation. The wonderful unspoilt nature will leave you breathless.
The second Učka Vertical 2014 mountain race will take place on Saturday 25/10/2014 as part of the famous 'Marunada' food festival in Lovran, dedicated to sweet chestnuts. The all-day programme includes music and entertainment as well as a wide range of traditional dishes and desserts made with the famous Lovran sweet chestnuts.
The race starts at 10:00 am in Medveja (3 m) and ends at the peak of Vojak (1396 m). The estimated duration of the race is between 1 and 2.5 hours. The last year's record was 1:00:04 sec. The total climb is 1,417 m. Participants have the chance to win valuable sponsor awards.
We invite you to visit the Učka Vertical mountain race.
