“The Belgrade 10K” at the opening of the second part of the running season

The second part of the running season in Serbia will kick off with the “Belgrade fast 10K,” a 10,000-meter race scheduled for September 7th on Novi Beograd, starting and finishing at Bulevar Nikole Tesle near Park Prijateljstva at Ušće. This will be the third race of the season organized by the Belgrade Marathon, following the Dexyco Children’s Marathon and the 37th Comtrade Belgrade Marathon, which set numerous records this year and pushed many boundaries and standards in terms of organization.

“10K Belgrade,” supported by Nike, will be held for the second time in our capital, placing Belgrade among the ranks of major European and global cities renowned for hosting 10-kilometer street races. The course in Novi Beograd where the race will take place is certified by World Athletics, ensuring that all results will be recognized by World Athletics and included in the official calendar of global street races.

Last year, the “Belgrade 10K” garnered significant interest with over three thousand participants at the starting line. Bernard Vambua from Kenya won the men’s competition with a time of 28:26, while Obukir El-Ohabi Duae from Spain triumphed in the women’s category with a time of 33 minutes and 20 seconds.

“We will once again strive to provide a unique experience for all participants on the track and meet the standards that have made us recognizable in the running community throughout the region. We owe great thanks to our friends and partners at Nike, who have provided tremendous support for this project,” said Darko Habuš, director of the Belgrade Marathon.

“Registrations for participation in this race have already begun, and considering the limited number of competitors, I encourage all interested parties to register as soon as possible and secure their spot. This is another way in which we aim to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity as the best means of preventing non-communicable diseases, as a healthy lifestyle has been one of the pillars of the Belgrade Marathon for nearly four decades. By the end of the year, we will have two more races under our organization: the dm Women’s Race at Ada Ciganlija on October 6th, and the 5th Belgrade Half Marathon scheduled for November 24th. Looking ahead to next year, I can announce another exciting event: a race to be held on the runway of Nikola Tesla Airport, but more details on that will follow,” concluded Habuš.
