ŠILO-CRIKVENICA Swimming Marathon
The oldest swimming marathon on the Adriatic coast (since 1910) and a signature event of the Crikvenica Summer Showtime, the Šilo-Crikvenica Swimming Marathon traditionally takes place on 15 August, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, the patroness of Crikvenica. Participants swim along a fixed 3,500-metre-long course from Šilo to Crikvenica. Every year, top distance swimmers from Croatia and abroad participate in the marathon, which is also open to recreational athletes and swimming enthusiasts. Don’t miss being part of the spectacular event, either as a participant or to support the competitors! Enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon with the spectacle of the blue sea full of swimmers and boats, and join the numerous spectators who cheer on the participants in Crikvenica and Šilo. The waters off Crikvenica will again this year be like the most beautiful picture postcard.
