Marco Polo Challange
Croatian Championship in medium length triathlon
The 10th Marco Polo Challange was held in the magical and unique Korčula, in one of the most beautiful Mediterranean oases, in the culturally and historically rich treasury of our history, from 18 to 20 September 2020.
The tenth anniversary was an opportunity to pay homage to this city’s first medium-length triathlon (also known as the half Ironman – 1.9 km swimming / 90 km cycling / 21.1 km running).
The track from Korčula to Vela Luka was quite demanding, and high temperatures created additional pressure on the competitors. As an introduction to the main race, the competition was held in shorter distances (sprint triathlon, relay sprint triathlon – and humanitarian road race at 5 km).

It was a day to remember: the weather was beautiful, even though we were swimming in the neoprene, the air temperature in the morning was 19 ° C and towards noon the temperature rose to 35 ° C!
The atmosphere among the contestants is outstanding, family like, and yet competitively serious.
It was an unforgettable weekend in which everyone will bring valuable memories for themselves, which will enrich their own treasury of memories.
