Konjic virtual 10k & 5k run

 

:: WE ARE CONTINUING OUR TRADITION AND INTRODUCING SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW::

After a successful “Konjički noćni cener” (Konjic Night 10k) race last year, we planned many surprises and an even better race for you in 2020. But, unfortunately, due to the current situation (COVID-19) and all of the restrictions and safety measures, despite the best efforts and attempts on behalf of the AK Pace Konjic Organizing committee, we were unable to secure the necessary conditions to host the “Konjički noćni cener 2020” (Konjic Night 10k 2020) event. We know that all of you were eagerly anticipating this year's race in Konjic, meeting, and enjoying the beautiful sites, sadly, we are forced to continue the tradition of the “Konjic Night 10k” in a virtual format.

For these reasons, this year, we decided to organize a “Summer Virtual Fest” which will consist of two virtual races: a 5k race or the “Konjic Virtual 5k” and a 10k race or the “Konjic Virtual 10k.” You can run either distance/race anywhere in the world between July 3-5, 2020, the dates we originally had for the “Summer Vibes Fest.”

:: RACE DISTANCE AND RACE RESULTS ::

In order to make this year's race better than last year's, we had planned many surprises for you, which we are forced to save for next year. We will let you in on one of the details from this year’s plan, which is that this year’s event, the “Summer Vibes Fest”, was supposed to be a 3-day event filled with activities hosted by the city of Konjic, and its people. 

The “Summer Vibes Fest “, was supposed to be a new way of racing and meeting, which requires a lot more time to organize, as well as strong support from sponsors who are also affected by the current situation.

So, instead of the “Summer Vibes Fest” we are organizing a “SUMMER VIRTUAL FEST” which consists of two virtual races where each participant can choose between running a 5k or a 10k race at their desired location (balcony, yard, city streets), tracks their time using the
“Strava” and “Garmin” app, and submits their race results to us [note: only Elapsed time will be counted].  

Since we already imagined this race as a three-day event, the participants have between July 3 and July 5, 2020, to complete either the “Konjic Virtual 10k” or the “Konjic Virtual 5k.”

Race results must be submitted by 23:59pm on July 5, 2020.  

Registration is now open, and participants can enter up until July 1, 2020. Payments must be made in full by July 2, 2020. Each participant can only run one of the two races – either the 5k or the 10k.

:: PARTICIPATION ::
