  • 100 miles of Istria: Red course


    Labin - Umag

    Ultratrail race

    Ultratrail race

    The 100 miles course is the hardest and the most beautiful course that we offer. 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 breathtaking panoramas. The course starts in the 3000 years old town Labin, climbs the Učka mountain and descends in Buzet where your drop bag will wait for you.

    After the well-deserved rest, the trail leads you to the smallest town in the world, the town of Hum,  then to the medieval pearl Motovun and back to the finish in Umag.

    169,5 km with 6.632 m doesn’t seem so hard but trust us, this course is very demanding and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.

    Welcome to the 7th edition of the ultra trail race 100 miles of Istria!
