Island of Pag trail

The island of Pag is associated with the bora winds, fine cheese and savoury lamb. So the Pag Island Trail is an ideal opportunity to get to know Kolan, often called the cheese capital, and the culture and customs of the island of Pag. Unusually for an area with very harsh karst terrain, the territory of the Kolan Municipality offers a wide range of macadam trails and footpaths along the seashore (no need to worry about ‘off-road running’). During the race, the Kolan Municipality, as the organizer, will present its original products, culture and long-standing traditions at the refreshment stations and the finish-line. Learn why Pag cheese wins gold medals and what is so special about Pag’s sheep.? “The sheep on Pag move about freely inside broad fields bordered by stacked stone fences. Given the availability of certain plants (as opposed to other sheep which eat pretty much any plant), their milk is so highly-valued because it is not used to produce milk but rather cheese. This is the same reason why Pag lambs have an enchanting flavour, which you can experience yourself at the finish line. Whey, as a by-product of the cheese-making process, can also be sampled at the refreshment stations and finish-line, to the delight of all athletes for whom this product is a vital component of a sports diet.” The race will be opened by a surprise guest, and at its finish-line you will be treated to entertainment, with lunch prepared by the industrious natives of Kolan. Entertainment will also be carried throught the night with Crvena jabuka band. We will prepare a sale of local produce. Take the opportunity to socialize while participating in the race, and get to know and feel the island of Pag.
