POSTPONEMENT FAQ

Why has the 6th edition of Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik been postponed?


The 6th edition of Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik, originally scheduled to take place on 26th & 27th April, (then 26th & 27th September), has been postponed until next year due to the global pandemic of COVID-19.
Respecting the minimum distance between people (physical distancing), the traceability of personal contacts (contact tracing), the limitation of event sizes or the uncertainty of a second wave in the autumn involve an indeterminable risk for large events like Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik.
Under these conditions, a safe organisation and execution of the event in the intended form and quality is not realistic.


Safety of our runners, staff, volunteers and citizens of Dubrovnik comes first, and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee it in these circumstances.


Traditionally, more than 85% of our participants come from abroad. Current circumstances make it difficult for many of them to plan their travel.


When will the 6th edition of Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik take place?


The 6th edition of Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik is expected to take place on April 24th and 25th, 2021. The Kids’ Day and Run the Wall race to take place on April 24th, while the Half Marathon and the 5K charity races on April 25th, 2021. The EXPO to take place from April 21st till 24th, 2021.
If government restrictions on public events are lifted in time, we will prepare for the race to take place like every year: starting and ending the races on Stradun in the Old Town.
If restrictions will still be in force and prevent a physical event from taking place, or if restrictions are not lifted in time, we are also ready for an alternative date in fall of 2021 (dates TBA depending on the situation). Given the situation is unpredictable at this stage, we must be open to various options.

Will I receive a refund for 2020 registration?


In accordance with Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik race rules, registration fees which have already been paid will not be refunded. Based on the force majeure conditions which came into force when the global pandemic was announced by WHO on March 11th, 2020 and are still in force today, both the initial, but also the alternative dates for Du Motion – Runners’ Days Dubrovnik had to be changed. Registration fees have not been lost, they have been carried forward for the new event date – April 24th & 25th, 2021, or you may transfer your registration to the 2022, 2023 or 2024 races or to another runner for any of the following editions (2022, 2023 or 2024).
