The Vidovdan Road Race has been moved from June 27 to August 15.

Because of the coronavirus epidemic we had to postpone Brčko's Vidovdan Road Race. Having in mind that the Race is a part of the World Athletics calendar of events and also a Balkan Athletics 10 km championship, in the last couple of weeks we were working intensively on finding the most optimal date for 24th Vidovdan Road Race.

The most important thing we had to think about was the date in which all borders will be opened and also to allow enough space and time for athletes to get back.in form since they were out of the training process for several months.

We decided the best date for all of these factors would be August 15th and at this moment it seems that Vidovdan Road Race will be the first event in the continuation of the World Athletic Series.

Considering this new situation in the next 10 days we will change terms for participation and they are going to be following all regulations and measures for the protection of participant's health. Entry fees for Vidovdan Road Race will be symbolic and all funds raised this way shall be transferred to humanitarian purposes.

See you in Brčko on August 15th!

Moses Kibet and Katsiaryna Shaban Karneyenka were victorious at the Vidovdan Road Race

Moses Kibet and Katsiaryna Shaban Karneyenka were victorious at the Vidovdan Road Race, winning the men’s and women’s titles in 28:34 and 33:40 respectively at the IAAF Bronze Label road race in Brcko on Saturday June 23.  Kibet looked controlled throughout and led a breakaway pack in the early stages. The Kenyan was followed closely by compatriot Ezra Kering, Romania’s Nicolae Soare, Morocco’s Jaouad Chemlal and Derara Hurisa of Ethiopia. Hurisa, who had set PBs for 10km and 5000m in the week leading up to the race, had to withdraw in the second half after feeling pain in his back. It left just three men at the front with the lead changing frequently before Kibet forged ahead at the eighth kilometre. With a strong finish, Kibet crossed the line in 28:34 to win by 35 seconds from Kering. Soare placed third in 29:17.  For a while it looked as though Lilian Jelagat would make it a Kenyan double in Brcko as she led the women’s race up until the seventh kilometre. Karneyenka, however, had other plans and she attacked in the final few kilometres to take the lead. Jelagat stayed in relatively close contact, but the Belarusian eventually won by four seconds in 33:40. Ethiopia’s Gadise Mulu Demissie was third in 33:53. (06/25/2018) Views: 937 ⚡AMP
