Vidovdan 10K Road Raceofficially has one of the fastest and best tracks. The course consists of a 920.28-meter lap around the park, which has to be run eleven times for the 10K race. The start line lies conveniently at the broadest part of the 920m-lap course, where the course bends away from beside the park through a back road of the town fronted with orange-pantiled houses, private gardens, and a few local businesses. Within 300m the road bends back to rejoin the Park, and the course then runs along the other two sides of the triangular green. Then the runners pass through the finish line to complete their first lap.
