Our running tours in Sarajevo will take you through the “Jerusalem of Europe” as you crush some kilometres. Home to Jews, Muslims, Catholics and Orthodox Christians, the city has a distinctive blend of both Ashkenazi and Sephardic synagogues, mosques and churches and a cosmopolitan feel. As you travel east to the Orthodox Christian Republika Srpska side of the city, the on-going division is evident. Museums such as Sarajevo Tunnel and the War Childhood Museum give you a fantastic insight into local history.

But Sarajevo is much more than its 20th-century history. Not only is it an architectural melting pot, but it has a vibrant spirit that is above past conflict. Baščaršija, from Ottoman rule, is the city’s old town and home to a thriving market and Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque.

To get away from the city, our running tours in Sarajevo can take you on some of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s best trail running routes. The Igman Mountain is an ideal place if you want something more challenging than a city run. The cool, fresh air is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle. But that’s not all. The Trebevic Tour winds up the hills to the north of the city, where you can spot wildlife such as foxes and deer.

The capital of Bosnia still hasn’t become an overcrowded tourist hotspot, so get in while it is still pristine. Your local running guide is waiting to show you around, so lace up and let’s go running!
