PubmetRUN is the only race that puts your real running to the test. You can be a slow runner or a serious athlete – it doesn’t matter. All you need to do is to show up in front of the main building of the University of Zadar on 13 September 2024 at 7:00. You can also participate remotely and send us a screenshot of your activity from any app (Strava, Garmin, Polar…). The run has to be recorded from 10-13 September and has to be 5K (5 km or 3.1 miles) long. If running is too hard for you, you can walk, there is no time limit! 

We have prizes – free participation at PUBMET2025! There are two categories (W and M, no age categories).

You can send screenshots, photos and videos to with the subject of the email: PubmetRun2024.

PUBMET2023 Runners

PUBMET2022 Runners


The tradition of PubmetRUN began back in 2018 when it was an unofficial training with only 3 runners involved. The number of participants had exponentially increased until 2022. From 3 to 12 runners in only a few years, that is a 400 % increase! The number of participants remained stable in 2023, but help us increase it in 2024 by joining our small happy running community!

These are our winners so far:

  • PubmetRUN 2020 – Iryna Kuchma
  • PubmetRUN 2021 – Ana Đorđević (best result) and Iva Vrkić (funniest photo)
  • PubmetRUN 2022 – Niels Stern
  • PubmetRUN 2023 – Matt Hodgkinson
  • PubmetRUN 2024 – might be you

We are looking forward to running with you!
