The Vidovdan Road Race (Bosnian: Vidovdanska trka) is an annual 10k road running race in Brčko, a multi-ethnic town of about 44,000 people in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Brčko is located in the north-eastern corner of the country, right on the border with Croatia and just about twenty kilometres from the border with Serbia.

Every year, the event attracts an international field of top runners from all around the world.

The route is a single loop that takes the runners through the town centre, then out and back to the River Sava (which forms the border with Croatia) and finally through residential and green areas in the southern part of Brčko.

In addition to the 10k race, the event offers a 2k fun run and a number of children's races which are hugely popular with the kids.

The Vidovdanska trka is held every year around Vidovdan, the feast day of Saint Vitus, celebrated by the Serbian Orthodox Church on 28 June.
