Belgrade Marathon | CorD Charity Masters 2015
Rain, wind and unseasonably cold weather did not manage to spoil the biggest and most positive sporting event in Serbia, which saw participants run, walk and enjoy themselves in Belgrade for the 28th time
This year’s SuisseGas 28th Belgrade Marathon will be remembered for the rain, wind and cold weather. However, it was the bad weather and generally bad conditions to be outdoors which highlighted the fact that this year’s marathon demonstrated its magnitude, might and good vibrations successfully, according to the majority of the marathon’s participants.
If nothing else, Serbia needs to pay much greater attention to this globally renowned sporting event and the biggest event in the country, which each year brings together many thousands of people of good will, positive vibrations and good energy.
The marathon’s participants came from all over Serbia, the region and the world to gather in the area between Tašmajdan Park and Nikola Pašić Square in the early morning hours of marathon day. As the start time approached, more and more people gathered, just as Belgrade Marathon Director Dejan Nikolić had predicted earlier when he noted a few hours before the race, while staring skywards, that this year's marathon would be remembered as one of the best.
A total of 317 people registered to participate in the traditional 9th CorD Charity Masters Race. They started to assemble around 9am on the morning of the marathon. After taking group photos, sending messages and agreeing on a strategy, CorD’s humanitarians assumed their starting positions at 10:10am to begin their race for charity. The CorD Charity Masters Race is all about people investing effort and exerting themselves to secure donations for those most in need.
