This polumaraton (half marathon) is held annually in September in the vibrant Balkan city of Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A new two-lap course was introduced in 2021, starting on the pedestrianized Ferhadija Street between two of Sarajevo's greatest monuments, Begova džamija and Ferhadija džamija, both 16th-century mosques, located in the oldest part of the city.

The finish line will be on Trg Susan Sontag (Susan Sontag Square) in front of the Narodno pozorište (National Theatre), about 700 metres from the start area.
