We are thrilled to announce the fourth installment of the annual Zagreb Advent Run charity race, which will take place on December 8, 2019. Our race starts and finishes in front of The Westin Zagreb hotel!

This year’s race is dedicated to raising awareness and the promotion of responsible activities under the sun throughout the year. According to the latest data from the Croatian National Cancer Registry of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, 800 people suffered from melanoma in Croatia during 2016.

With this race, our goal is to inspire runners and citizens to act responsibly and become aware of the importance of prevention when it comes to skincare and mole examinations. A portion of the funds gathered from race participation fees will be donated to the charity Zdravi pod suncem (Healthy under the Sun) to support their causes and actions.
