ARE WE DOING THIS?
Because we want to give children, who would be eager to participate in a large-scale adventure race like the “Around the Town of Pazin in 80 Minutes” race, the chance to experience competition that is not too strenuous for them.
Because we want to play our part in preserving the Pazinčica dale, which has been an inspiration to many before us.
Because we want to make a point of the need to preserve the last of the once numerous mills along the Pazinčica River.
