Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping adventure like no other – the Lim Bay Challenge is calling your name! If you’re into kayaking, biking, trekking and pushing your limits, then this is the event for you.
Taking place from September 29th to October 1st in picturesque Vrsar, the Lim Bay Challenge is your chance to immerse yourself in the stunning Istrian nature in a unique way. Sign up for one of the three races that will take you through the Vrsar archipelago, the enchanting Lim Channel and its surrounding landscapes. Not only will you be in for an epic adventure, but you’ll also be testing your mettle and having a blast.
The excitement begins on September 30th with two major races. First up is the Adventure Ultra – a 65-kilometer beast of a race for the super strong and super brave. Running, cycling, rowing and a few surprises thrown in for good measure – this one has it all. Starting at a secret location and finishing at the Belvedere Resort, it’s a journey that will have you relying on your map, compass, and sheer determination to overcome all kinds of obstacles.
If you’re looking for adventure but want to take it down a notch, the Adventure Light race is for you. This 35-40 kilometer race still involves running, cycling, and rowing, but at a slightly lower intensity. Starting and finishing at Belvedere Resort, it’s your chance to take in the beauty of Lim Bay and the surrounding area while getting your outdoor fix.
Then, on October 1, there’s the Trekking Challenger. If walking and running in nature is your thing, this is your race. For about 25 kilometers, you’ll wind your way through the Kontija forest, along the Lim Channel and through Vrsar. The views? Incredible. And get this: it’s an orienteering race, so you’ll find the checkpoints on the map all by yourself. Depending on your fitness level, it’ll take you between 3 and 5 hours to complete, which is totally doable for anyone who’s used to a few weekly hikes or active recreation.
But that’s not all! The Lim Bay Challenge isn’t just about racing; it’s also a chance to learn something new. On September 30 in Kloštra, you can try your hand at rock climbing under the guidance of experienced professionals. And don’t miss the Nordic Walking workshop on Saturday. Led by a top-notch instructor, you’ll master the technique, posture and proper use of poles for this engaging full-body workout.
See you there!
