The Miljacka river in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (Author: Zdepre / / public domain / photo modified by


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

The start/finish area is at the BBI Centar, a shopping mall in the city centre.

The route takes the runners, largely out and back, in three directions: north, west and east.

At first, the route heads north to the Koševo neighbourhood where participants run a loop through the Olympic Stadium, site of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics 1984.

Then, the route travels along the Miljacka river (pictured) downstream to the western part of Sarajevo and then upstream through the city centre and through the wooded Miljacka Canyon to the picturesque 16th-century Kozija ćuprija (Goat's Bridge) which is on the eastern edge of the city.
