There are a few different races to choose from, including a fun run for kids. The half marathon started at 9am in front of the SCC Shopping Centre in the centre of Sarajevo, went towards the old town (south of it along the river), then out of the city into nature, then back towards the old town (north side), took a loop north and went through the stadium, then back to SCC, past it, right along the river for a few km and back to the start/finish. It wasn't crowded, most people spoke English, the weather was good, the crowds cheerful and in a very good mood. It was well organised, there were many happenings before and after and even free cevapcici after the run. The route is quite scenic, especially the stretch after the old town, where you run in a mountainous area and through a tunnel. I also liked the bit around the old town and running through the stadium. The route is almost flat and good for PBs. It was my first time in Sarajevo and I enjoyed it a lot.

According to the sensations and the clock, the route was approximately 400 meters longer. Otherwise everything is fine!

This was such a flat, enjoyable course! I loved how we crossed over bridges and ran by the water. It was a great way to see the city. I personally loved how it was two loops for the half so that way I knew what was coming up in the second lap. It was very easy to pick up the race packet and it was nice that the event wasn't overly crowded. Highly recommend!
