Spectacular return of Du Motion: runners from all over the world filled the streets of Dubrovnik

Written by  May 02, 2022

After two years of uncertainty, Du Motion was back even stronger and better! The best proof of this were the streets of Dubrovnik filled with runners from over 40 countries and the amazing atmosphere on Stradun as the starting and ending point of all races that took place on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May as part of the sixth edition of Du Motion - Runners' Days Dubrovnik.

"One of the best races I've run so far. Great atmosphere, scenic track and amazing support along it. I stopped a couple of times because I just had to photograph this beauty. For every recommendation to other runners!" immediately after the race he summed up his impressions of Neil from Northern Ireland, and similar impressions were shared by others, with the obligatory addition at the end: "See you again next year!"

As many as 650 people were involved in the organization and made sure that every last detail passed in the best possible order. Among them were volunteers from Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Sweden and Turkey, who came to Dubrovnik on the occasion of the big International Conference on Volunteering in Sports, the final event of the EU project for education of volunteers on sports media, which Du Motion, as the project leader, wanted to increase its visibility on the market, but also to pass on to others part of the energy and enthusiasm with which its volunteers made this Dubrovnik event recognizable in the racing world.

A new meeting with the runners is already scheduled for April 29 and 30, 2023!
