3rd qualifying race: Sljeme marathon!

And here we are at the last of our qualifying races for the Zagreb runners delegation for St. Petersburg, Sljeme Marathon! The fastest in the most probably the most challenging marathon in Croatia was, following her habits, Veronika Jurišić, but, since she has already booked her place in delegation, our new member in delegation is second ranked in today’s marathon race, Irena Smojver. In the male competition the winner was Nikola Špoljar, but he has some very important obligations in Croatia at the time of our visit to St. Petersburg, so he will not join us. In the place of Nikola we have chosen true living legend of Croatian long distance running. Dragan Janković will travel to our friendly Russia. The luckiest in the lottery among all the participants of the marathon race at the Sljeme Marathon event was Matija Brlek. And this year all three lucky members in our delegation, at three qualifying races, were males. et’s hope in the future we will have some lucky girls too. We are just about 10 days to go to Russia, so now is the time for the last preparations.
