Sinj – Vitez+konj+kopje = Alka
Tradicionalno viteško tekmovanje sinjskih alkašev, Sinjska alka je živi spomenik s katerim prebivalci Sinja že od leta 1715 ohranjajo spomin na zmago naroda Cetinske krajine nad turškimi osvajalci. V čast junaškemu dogodku, ko je 700 branilcem uspelo po petnajstdnevnem obleganju odbiti napad 60 tisoč turških vojakov, so prebivalci Sinja začeli igrati igro v kateri so se pomerili vitezi, ki so tudi sami sodelovali v boju.

Pozneje so Alko »tekli« njihovi potomci in prebivalci Cetinske krajine, tekmovanje pa se je ohranilo vse do danes. Na avtentičnih lokacijah – starodavni sinjski utrdbi Grad, pomožni utrdbi Kamičak, Alkarskih dvorih in Alkarski tekaški stezi – številni alkarski možje s ponosom ohranjajo tristoletno tradicijo, ki simbolizira junaštvo in željo po osvoboditvi. Vrhunec te tradicionalne prireditve je znana borba vitezov za alko, ki poteka vsako prvo nedeljo v avgustu. Jezdeč na konju Alkarji v polnem galopu usmerjajo tri metre dolga kopja proti alki, ki visi na vrvi preko tekaške steze.

Alka je železni kolut, ki je sestavljen iz dveh koncentričnih obročev, spojena s tremi železnimi prečkami, ki medprostor delijo na tri enake dela. Dobitnik Alke je bogato nagrajen, prebivalci Sinja in Cetinske krajine pa ga do prihodnje Alke slavijo kot najboljšega junaka in viteza.

Sinjska alka zavzema posebno mesto v hrvaški tradicijski kulturi, kot tudi turistični ponudbi. Gre namreč za edinstveno viteško tekmovanje v Evropi, ki poteka v mestecu v Dalmaciji, oddaljenem približno 30 km severno od Splita.
