As part of the 2nd Run for the Soul competition in Imotski, there will be a 10 km competition, a 5 km competition, and a children’s race, reports

The basic idea is that children and parents perform together at one sporting event, both as competitors and as fans, which would be positive and affirmative for both of them. The organizers want both children and parents to be actively involved in a form of recreational sports, and to feel the joy of running and participating in a sporting event in their city.

The Run for the Soul is part of a project supported by the Faculty of Kinesiology and Economics in Split and the Association of Croatian Tourist Guides. The children’s race takes place in cooperation with primary schools in the Imotski region. The ambassador of the race will be the celebrated Olympian Matea Parlov Koštro.

The start of the race at 10 km and 5 km is at 9:00 am, and the start of the children’s race is at 11:00 am. The start and finish of all races are in the center of Imotski, in front of the main square (Stjepan Radić Street). The trail passes through the old town of Imotski, next to the football stadium Gospin Dolac (one of the 10 most beautiful stadiums in the world), and the Blue and Red Lakes (soon among the UNESCO list of geoparks).
