2. Parenzana

Parenzana running trail once was a rail line going from Poreč to Trieste. Today it’s called the Road of Health and Friendship. It’s a newer project of the local people whoose aim was to reform the old rail line into unique and beautiful trail in the Istrian mainland where people can run, hike and cycle in a gorgeous greenery discovering the interior of Istria.

This path is a must try if you’re in Poreč because it’s one of the kind in the whole of Croatia. It’s a path where the old rail line used to go, but there are no tracks anymore and the whole route is covered with pebble. The route is not hard, it’s flat land with few small hills on the way, but the landscapes are magnificent and you’ll enjoy every second of it. While there, you’ll pass through the village of Nova Vas and continue through vineyards and olive grows. The route itself is long, but starting from Poreč you can make your way back or just hang on and discover so many beautiful old Istrian villages!

We must warn you that you’ll pass by a lot of wineries, which could be very tempting for a runner on a hot summer day, so a glas or two sounds very refreshing as a break from running or, even better, a reward for the long run!

3. Materada running

A beautiful path by the sea in Poreč area, Materada, is an ideal choice for a run. Start your run in a calming green scenario between the trees and continue on a land path along the sea to the cape St. Martin, around the peninsula, then along the road. Further on passing the devastated ruins of a Roman villae rusticae, on a wide land trail not far from the coast (cape Mrčana) along the olive grows.

The trail leads to the top of the hill (33 meters high) through the shade of the great oak and cedar trees. Let yourself go and take a deep breath while discovering this beautiful and most of all peaceful running route.

TIP: Take SightRun App and start your run in front of the Valamar Parentino Hotel

5. Maximus Agri trail run

If you’re up for a run out of the city bustle and to explore the nature in Poreč surroundings, then Maximus Agri is your route! It takes you outside the city, you can make it shorter or longer, it’s up to your running condition, so that’s why this route is adjustable for every runner. Clay path through the woods in deep shades will take you to an old Istrian village Vrvari, where it would be an ideal break spot, and then the route takes you again through the woods, olive grows and the next village. Something totally different than the usual, the pleasure is highly guaranteed!

6. St. Maurus trail

The St. Maurus route got its name by the patron of the city of Poreč, St. Maurus, and because it takes you partly through the city, but it goes to the other side and outside the city too. Start of from Euphrasius’ Basilica, run enjoying stunning views and continue through the peaceful Materada bay hidden beneath the trees.

If you thought what a pleasure this run is, you still didn’t reach the St. Martin bay, running by the sea untill you reach Červar Porat, a peaceful and sleepy little town right next to Poreč. The run along this trail is particularly pleasant because all the time you are running along the coastline with beautiful bays where you can enjoy the breathtaking mediterranean landscapes. When you reach Santa Marina bay, cross over a small bridge and run towards green vineyards and olive grows and taste home made food, wine, brandy and honey produced in this area.
