The longest and most beautiful course, SKY DUT, starts in Omiš and after 160 km ends on popular Omiš beach.
MOUNTAIN DUT, 103 km long course, starts from impressive Klis fortress, place where many armies have clashed through the millennia. Gunshot from “kubura”, old fashioned gun of Klis uskoks, members of old medieval army who still take care of the old fortress, will mark the race start.
SEA DUT, 53 kilometres long course, mostly follows the coast line. It starts from Makarska, one of the most popular tourist cities in Dalmatia, placed at the foot of mountain Biokovo. Don’t be surprised if you see people swimming in the sea and a bit later you see snow on the mountain.
