About us

NGO Marathon Sarajevo

Join the biggest running community in BiH, get great discounts with our partners, enjoy the advantages of group registrations and meet new friends who share the same passion. 

NGO Marathon Sarajevo exists since 2007, but our desire to promote a healthy lifestyle while building a healthier and more active society had existed long before founding our NGO. As an organization, we offer a unique blend of organizational skills and experience in running at all levels and for that reason, we are able to fully understand the needs of our partners-sponsors, as well as the needs of the runners and recreational runners.

Our key personnel consist of highly educated managers who, as part of their daily business activities, manage teams and budgets. In addition, they are also experienced runners who run approximately 3500 km per year each, and have a strong desire to contribute to making a better society.

Since 2013, for the first time in Bosnia & Herzegovina, we have organized a race for girls named Girls on the Run. Another project that we are very proud of is the Running School Klix through which, out of six generations of beginners, more than 500 complete beginners, who pushed their limits and trained hard for 6 months to complete the Sarajevo Half Marathon, and many other races afterwards. Our running school represents an excellent opportunity to be in a good shape and get rid of stress, while enjoying a great company and having a lot of fun.

We are the pioneers in Bosnia & Herzegovina in the Running Tour services in Sarajevo. Anyone interested in combining their running practices with beautiful sightseeing of the city of Sarajevo is welcome to join us.

The charity aspect in all of our activities is extremely important and every race we organize has a humanitarian component, since our goal is to raise the social awareness and responsibility. The projects or the races we organize mark the International Car Free Day, the World Environment Day, the Day of Europe, World Autism Awareness Day and other important dates and represent excellent opportunities for a healthy and active life.

All of our projects are open for everyone. Professional, recreational runners, walkers and beginners in running are more than welcome.

See you at the start line!
