Mountaineering marathon at Fruška Gora
September 19 - September 20
Mountaineering Marathon at Fruška Gora is a sports competition-recreational event of international character. It is one of the oldest marathons of this type in Europe that has been held continuously for more than four decades without interruptions. Marathon includes 19 trails of different length and altitude differences. They are all routed in a hilly, forest area of Fruška Gora (97% of forest and 3% of urban area) that is located at the distance of only 10 kilometres from Novi Sad. Five trails have been certified by ITRA (International Trail Running Association) and they are of competition character while the remaining 14 trails are of recreational character and are aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle and nature preservation, as well as cultural and historical heritage. For pre-school children there is a special Trail of Joy and Satisfaction. This sports-recreational event gathers several tens of thousands of competitors and recreation lovers every year.
