Zupa, the homeland of Prokupac and Tamjanika, inspires many while being the ultimate purpose for others. A region that has been attracting visitors for centuries with its extraordinary nature, unique climate, vineyard-covered slopes, rich cellars, friendly people, and warm hosts.
The breathtaking views of endless vineyards and surrounding mountains have captivated numerous souls, while a glass of wine from this region offers an unforgettable experience for all senses.
That's how the French consul Decaux recorded in his diary when he first visited Zupa in the distant year of 1904.
Zupa, a gentle valley in central Serbia, nestled between the magnificent mountains of Kopaonik, Zeljin, Goc, and Jastrebac. It was here, over 7,000 years ago, that a settlement of the Neolithic Vinca culture thrived, and some of the most impressive divine figurines from that period were discovered.
The medieval fortress of Koznik stands as one of the best-preserved fortifications in Serbia, commanding a dominant position high above the Rasina Valley, the villages of Brus, the foothills of Kopaonik, and the Zupa of Aleksandrovac. Today, it continues to captivate visitors with its rich cultural and artistic events, as well as numerous hiking and adventure tours.
Two new trails, which were not available in previous editions of the race, represent a real new challenge for all participants.
Carefully designed to meet all the needs and desires of runners, regardless of their fitness level or preferences.
Real trail paths, with a minimum of asphalt sections, just enough to shake off the shoes at the end. Without crossing with traffic. For enjoying a peaceful passage through vineyards and fields.
On the plateau in front of the Museum of Viticulture and Viniculture, where all races start and finish, where an all-day party will take place, there will be a mini fair of Zupa wines and local products.
Enjoy wines, food, and the company of friends and family, while admiring all the riches of the wine-growing region of Župa.
