Three races within the ‘Olimpija Run Fest’ - 13th Sarajevo Sberbank half marathon, G-Drive relay half marathon, and the Novo Nordisk Fun Run - will take place in Sarajevo on Sunday, September 15.
This year’s Sarajevo Sberbank half marathon will start in front of the Sarajevo City Center (SCC) shopping mall, in the Vrbanja Street at 0900 hrs on Sunday morning.
The route continues through the Hiseta, Obala Kulina Bana, Bentbasa, and Dariva streets, all the way up to the Kozja Cuprija Bridge.
Racers will then turn back and run through Dariva and Bentbasa streets, before turning right into Telali Street. The route of the Sarajevo Sberbank Half Marathon continues through the Mula Mustafe Baseskije, Marsala Tita, Alipasina and Patriotske Lige streets, and then - after racers complete one lap inside the Asim Ferhatovic Hase stadium - back through Patriotske Lige, Alipasina and Marsala Tita streets.
Racers are then supposed to turn left to Vrbanja Street, and run through Vilsonovo Setaliste, Franje Rackog and Fra Filipa Lastrica streets, before making a U-turn at the end of Vilsonovo Setaliste and running back to Vrbanja Street, to complete the race in front of the SCC mall.
Some 2,000 participants from more than 40 different countries have registered for the 13th Sarajevo Sberbank half marathon.
