Run for Erasmus

On Sunday, 6th of October 2019, students from across the EU, Balkans and Bosnia and Herzegovina will meet for their first of a kind, Run4Erasmus 5K race. The race will take place in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and is expected to attract current Erasmus+ students, Erasmus+ alumni and those interested in studying abroad as well as other youth who might be looking for something fun and refreshing on their Sunday morning. This race promotes a healthy lifestyle and highlights the importance of being active amongst the youngsters, while also introducing them to the possibilities of academic and cultural exchanges offered by the Erasmus+ program. This race will also promote the new Erasmus+ actions that will be introduced with the upcoming 2021-2027 budget. New Erasmus actions give an opportunity for young athletes and sport coaches to participate in mobility schemes. This is especially important in the Western Balkans, where this program would tackle cross-border violence between different fan groups, as well as intolerance, discrimination and racism. Bosnian sport associations have not used the current funds of the Sport Chapter in the Erasmus+ Programme mostly due to lack of information and lack of capacities to write project proposals.

See how it went.
