INVITATION TO THE RACES
18 AND 19 JULY 2020, LISIČIĆI, MUNICIPALITY OF KONJIC (JABLANIČKO LAKE)
BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
Dear triathletes, dear professional and recreational competitors, former, future and potential ones, dear audience and friends,
We are honored to announce the second edition of the largest triathlon in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which rounded up over 160 athletes from nine countries in its first edition during August 2019. That day and that place was the first time when many of them experienced the magical world of triathlon, the world of three sports and bonded to it forever. It was the day that will be remembered by its beautiful energy, fair weather, excellent sport results and the awakening of triathlon in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the best way possible. We owe that to the organizational team, our hosts in Lisičići and Buturović Polje, the best volunteer team, but foremost to you, whose sole presence contributed to creating a story that will be told across the region as well as the world. The extraordinary first edition has obliged us to take a step further in the second one and offer more content not only to the athletes but to the audience as well and organize an even greater event in 2020, which is already eagerly expected. Therefore, there are 25 people in our organizational team, we have introduced several new disciplines and designed new programs, so, we are inviting you to join us and all together create another event to be remembered.
As in our first edition, we are going to have one thing in common – we dare to dream and make our dreams come true. Until the day of the triathlon, we wish you successful trainings without injuries. We are looking forward to getting together and remember – #DARETODREAM.
