A noble goal, great runners and good weather - everything came together on Sunday morning for the Lapad Run! The race in which Du Motion marked Breast Cancer Awareness Month was intended to raise awareness of the importance of preventive examinations and early detection of the disease.
In addition to participants from Dubrovnik and the surrounding area, among the 142 participants of the Lapad Runa were recreationalists from Split, Zagreb and Montenegro. Depending on the desires and form, some ran the race, some took a walk, but in this race everyone was the winner!
The best results in the ten-kilometre race were achieved by Marin Desnica in the men's (38:24) and Alemka Bajrić in the women's category (46:46), while Marko Kučko in the men's (19:08) and Karmen Fabris ran the fastest five-kilometre race (21:47) in the female category.
"We have been planning this joint action with the Public Health Institute of Dubrovnik-Neretva County for a long time. We are glad that we finally realized it, as we are glad that our fellow citizens supported the idea. Our wish is for this race to become traditional and it is held every October," said Du Motion director Alen Boskovic.
After this race preparations are underway for Du Motion’s main event, the internationally established Du Motion - Runners' Days Dubrovnik on April 30 and May 1, 2022, when runners from all over are expected in the city.
