The Bosniak National Minority Council in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb, organised the Vukovar-Srebrenica ultramarathon for the eleventh time this year and runners set off on Wednesday morning at Ovcara and will run 227 kilometres to Potocari.

This year, the entire section will be run by Dusko Strbac, Boban Pantovic, Robert Kasumovic and Drazen Cucic. Runners from Ovcara will be joined on the Vukovar-Vinkovci section by Ivan Galovic, Slavko Janjic, Domagoj Seremet, Ivan Spoljaric, Angel Milisic Zecevic, Damir Markota, Kristijan Andjelic, Jasna Pavicic and Katarina Banda.

“We will send a message to the domestic and international public, and especially to the small number of people in power who decide our destinies, that this kind of evil that happened in Vukovar, and ended with the genocide in Srebrenica, must never happen to anyone anywhere again,” the head of the Bosniak Council in Zagreb, Ekrem Becirovic, told the FENA news agency.

The ultramarathon participants are expected to arrive in Potocari on July 10 at around 12:45 p.m.

The ultramarathon is held under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Croatia Zoran Milanovic, members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Sefik Dzaferovic and Zeljko Komsic, Mayor of the City of Zagreb Tomislav Tomasevic and Mayor of the City of Sarajevo Benjamina Karic.
