Join 1st Banja Luka Marathon

On October 10, 2021, the Banja Luka 42.2K marathon will be held in Banja Luka for the first time, organized by TRK, the organizer of the traditional Banja Luka Half Marathon.

Within the 1ST Banja Luka marathon, 6 more different races will be organized: 7th Banja Luka Half Marathon 21.1K, Banja Luka Relay Marathon 42.2K, Banja Luka 10K, Banja Luka 5K, Bambini Marathon and Fun Run.

As every year, our organization pays special attention to the promotion of the city of Banja Luka. This time we did it with a special racing t-shirt design. With one design solution, we included 4 symbols of Banja Luka: the river Vrbas, the fortress Kastel, the Dayak boat and the chestnut leaf.

The Banja Luka Half Marathon has so far promoted the City of Banja Luka. With the new marathon race, the city of Banja Luka is receiving an even wider tourist promotion, higher attendance of foreign and domestic runners-tourists. Our partners get even more visibility.

The Banja Luka half marathon is still here, but it got a BIG younger brother.

Today, running is an inseparable factor of everyday life everywhere in the world, in addition to a healthy diet.

In live setting you can enjoy the unforgettable, unique Finish in Kastel fortress, an old Roman fort with local, music, food and drinks.

Be a part of the new Banja Luka marathon 42.2K - we need partners, runners, promoters or volunteers!
