Become a volunteer of Sarajevo's city races and promoter of healthy and active lifestyle.

NGO Marathon Sarajevo offers all interested persons from 15 to 80 years of age the opportunity to, through support in the organization of racing events in Sarajevo, achieve the following outstanding values:

  1. organizational skills and experience,
  2. a wide social network of productive and successful community members,
  3. socially useful work and a sense of altruism,
  4. continuous socializing and learning through fun,
  5. acquiring habits of running, fast walking or exercise,
  6. creative expression and innovation in work,
  7. being outdoors,
  8. gathering of the whole family around racing events in Sarajevo,
  9. positive influence and example,
  10. participation in various thematic workshops of sports, nutrition and mental preparation,
  11. refreshments, lunch and socializing after the races.

NGO Marathon Sarajevo has existed since 2007, but our desire to promote a healthy lifestyle, while at the same time building a healthier and more active society, existed much earlier. We organize 10 races annually:

  • SARAJEVO HALF MARATHON
  • RELAY HALF MARATHON
  • 5K SPRING RUN
  • FAMILY RUN
  • 10K NIGHT RUN
  • 5K TEAM RUN
  • SCHOOL RUN
  • BAMBINI MARATHON
  • FUN RUN
  • 5K RUNWAY NIGHT RUN¬†

We also launched the Klix Running School within which, through nine generations of enrolled participants, over 500 beginners managed to run the Sarajevo Half Marathon as well as numerous other races after six months of training.

Each of our projects also contains a humanitarian aspect through which we contribute to the social community. Volunteers are expected to design and implement creative and practical solutions in the organization of races for different ages and different lengths. These are the tasks:

  1. ensuring the course of the race, so that all runners respect the exact established course of the race;
  2. work at refreshment stations along the race route and the finish line;
  3. keeping the city clean after the race;
  4. encouraging runners with a creative approach and motivational messages;
  5. welcoming the runners at the finish line in honor of the medal presentation;
  6. participation in the meeting before each race and other tasks;
  7. promotion of events and volunteering on social networks;
  8. a proactive approach to work in all segments of the organization of racing events.
