19th Vidovdan Road Race 2015
Brčko (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Saturday 27 June 2015
The Vidovdanska trka in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a top-class 10k race which has welcomed a large number of elite athletes.
The course records are held by Gordon Mugi Mahagu of Kenya (28min 11sec) and Olivera Jevtić of Serbia (32min 4sec).
You don't need to be a top runner to take part in the race, however. The time limit to complete the course is 90min.
The route is a 10km-long loop through Brčko, a town of about 43,000 inhabitants, situated on the right bank of the mighty River Sava, on the border with Croatia.
The event is held every year around Vidovdan, the feast day of Saint Vitus, celebrated by the Serbian Orthodox Church on 28 June.
The Vidovdan children's races are not to be missed!
