Medio maratón, 3km, 10 km, 5 km


Take part in one of our races and enjoy the unforgettable, unique Finish in Kastel fortress, an old Roman fort with local, music, food and drinks.

The City of Banja Luka is an undiscovered jewel in the heart of Balkans. Its long green alleys, the surrounding greenery, the river Vrbas with its unique vivid green color, along with the medieval fortress in the city center pleasantly surprise anyone who comes to Banja luka for the first time. Banja Luka Half-marathon is a race that will take you through all of these beauties, and bind you to this place for the times to come. By participating in our half-marathon, you will become a part of an unforgettable story, the story about one city and the people who came to meet here and make friendship ties that will last for the rest of their lives.

Runners who have registered and made a payment have 2 options to run the Banja Luka Half Marathon:

Option 1: Running on the day of the event, October 11, 2020, on the route of the Banja Luka Half Marathon.

Runners will start from the Kastel Fortress in small groups or individually at their own discretion from 8 am to 11 am. Runners must have a participant number on their T-shirt. The start and finish of the race will be organized in the Kastel fortress, and music will send off and welcome the runners. Water will be available before the start of the race.  There will be water, beer, and food at the finish line; these refreshments will be available until 2 pm for all finishers. 

IMPORTANT: Staying time at the finish line after the race will be limited.

A few facts: the streets along the route of the Banja Luka Half Marathon will not be closed to traffic. THE CITY ADMINISTRATION IS NOT ABLE TO INSURE STREET CLOSINGS.  This is because the race has an “open” starting time.  It is not possible to close the streets from 8 AM to 2 PM, 7 hours plus about 2 hours before for route preparation. Streets are usually closed for a maximum of 4 hours.

The safety of the runners in terms of traffic will be ensured until they leave the Kastel fortress. After that our advice is to run on the sidewalk.

Taking photos of runners will be done at the start, finish, and on the route of the Banja Luka Half Marathon.

3 refreshment stations (2 doubles) will be organized on the route of the Banja Luka Half Marathon. We will also organize volunteers who will point the direction to runners on the route (sidewalk). 

Option 2: Runners can run “virtually”, run their race up to 15 days before the Banja Luka Half Marathon.  Virtual race times will be accepted from September 26 to October 11, 2020.  Virtual runners can run at a time, location, of their choice.

The following applies to both options:

After receiving the registration, we send an electronic participant bib number to every runner’s email, which must be printed and attached to the runner’s T-shirt while running the race. Along with the number, we also send a link to the form on which the runner will electronically report the results. All runners, virtual and day-of-the-race runners, must report their times by 11:59 PM on 12 October.  You can send us your picture with the number to [email protected] We will share the picture on social media.
Upon receipt of the results, we send an electronic certificate to each runner whose result has been confirmed (which we publish together with a photo of the competitor on our social networks).
Every runner, if he or she wants, can register and run all our races, of course in the given period between 26.9.2020. and 11.10.2020

For the 6th Banja Luka Half Marathon, we are introducing a new method of calculating results that equalize competitors regardless of age. Each runner’s time will be recalculated in relation to the runner’s age. When someone 25 years old runs 5 km in 20 minutes, it is not the same as when someone who is 60 years old runs that distance for the same amount of time. The RunBundle website has a scientifically developed calculator that we will use when processing the results. This is the time we will take into account when sorting the results and awarding prizes. See the web site for more information CLICK RunBundle               

We will send the participation package and the finishing medal to non-local runners after the official end of the event on October 11, 2020. and announce the official results. Runners who live in Banja Luka or the surrounding area must pick up their packages at our premises at a certain time. The packages we will send will not include the big bag, the race package does include a big bag. If they want a big bag, nonlocal runners can designate someone to pick it up or they will also be able to pick it up on our premises. When the runners receive the medal, they can send us a photo with a medal hung around their necks, which we will also post on social media. After November 1, packages and bags will not be able to be picked up.
