The 2018 IAU 100k World Championships take place this weekend in northern Croatia, near the village of Sveti Martin na Muri. The 100-kilometer course begins with one 2.5km out-and-back, and then launches into 13 repetitions of a 7.5km out-and-back route to compose those 100kms. The course is undulating, with about 800 meters of climb total.
