After a very successful first year, the second Croatian Walking Festival will be held in Lika in September.
The host cities will be Gospić and Otočac, where several routes of varying intensities will be walked, and just about anyone can participate.
September 7th is thus reserved for Gospic, where all registered walkers will master three 10+, 20+ and 30+ kilometers trails symbolically called Tesla.
After that, on September 8, the event moves to Otočac on the Gacka trail 10+, 20+ and 30+ kilometers long. About five hundred walkers walked in Lika last year, and it is assumed that this year the number will at least double.
This sporting event is unique in Croatia and, due to first year's good results, has been recognized globally.
Namely, in May the Walking Festival began the process of joining the World Walking Federation (IML) and has the status of a candidate. The best proof is that Croatia is following the world trends, and the final goal is to gather tens of thousands of walkers in the same way as similar events in the world that have been taking place for many years.
The benefits of both professional and recreational walking are numerous, and every minute you spend walking you can extend your life.
