About Ston Wall Marathon

The main feature of the race is the unforgettable view on the islands of Southern Adriatic.

Ston Castles' monumental walls were constructed between the 14th and 15th centuries, extending over 5 kilometers in length and measuring 5-10 meters in height. The walls were fortified by forty towers and bastions. In the 14th century, the construction of Mali and Veliki Ston began, one on one side and the other on the other side of the isthmus, which was of great importance for the defence of Pelješac and the entire western section of the Republic.

Overview

The race is hilly and scenic, starting and finishing in the medieval salt-producing fortress town of Ston, which sits on the Pelješac peninsula between the cities of Split and Dubrovnik.

The first 1.5 km take the runners to the fishing village of Mali Ston, from where they run back to Ston on the 14th-century "Great Wall" which connects Ston and Mali Ston across the hillsides.

The remaining 38 km of the marathon are run (partly out and back, and partly on gravel roads) through pine forests, along picturesque bays, and past Ston's vast saltpans.
