Dubrovnik in Motion

This somewhat bold idea was born in 2015, as the vision aiming at setting Dubrovnik in motion. Originally, the event had a motto "More than a race" and a very simple goal - to promote sports and healthy lifestyle, all within the spectacular setting of ancient Dubrovnik, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.

Thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm and joined efforts of Dubrovnik Sports Federation, The City of Dubrovnik and The Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Dubrovnik's Half Marathon really became "more than a race". Over a very short period, it has transformed into the full-fledged international multi-day sports and recreational event with as much as four races - Dubrovnik Half Marathon, 5K Charity Race, Run The Wall and Kids Day. The event includes the accompanying events such as Du Motion Expo - gathering place for runners and exhibitors - and Du Motion Chat - a series of talks by prominent lecturers from the world of running.
