TAKE PART IN A REAL COMPETITION. If besides the adventurous, you also possess a competitive spirit, do take in note that Cetina Region is a spot of many attractive races! We like the Sinj Trail, held in May, which has categories (and trails!) in lengths of 11, 22 and 33 km, inspired by types of competitions in our famous knights’ tournament – Alka (Bar, Čoja, Alka). These trails connect some of the  top attractions – from the church of Our Lady of Sinj and the magnificent Courtyards of the Alkari, to the protected landscape of Sutina and the enchanting viewpoints from which your eyes can reach towards Visoka, Kamešnica, Dinara and Svilaja! The Cetina Adventure Race, takes place in June, and there is an unlimited number of two-member teams which can participate. This race is a combination of various adrenaline disciplines in which teams face natural hurdles, and its “milder” variant is a dynamic City Challenge, which reveals to its participants many unknown spots of the town under Kamičak, and both children and adults can take part in it.
