Dear Triathletes,

Welcome to the 19th International Triathlon Cup "Kulin Ban" Boracko Lake 2022. It is a special honor for us to organize another, 19th edition of the triathlon race, on the occasion of the 832nd anniversary of the adoption of the Charter of Kulin Ban.

The triathlon race is held on Boračko Lake located in the heart of the Prenj Mountain, near the town of Konjic, famous for its woodcarving, rafting, tourist attractions, beautiful bazaar and numerous old crafts.

Swimming takes place in one of the most beautiful natural lakes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The bike path takes you
through a beautiful area that is primarily known for the untamed cliffs of the mountains Visočica, Bjelašnica and Prenj. The running trail follows the shore of the lake and eventually ends by passing through a plum and apple orchard. The change zone is close to the start of the swim and the finish line.

Bring family and friends with you and celebrate your athletic accomplishments with them.

We look forward to spending time with you and welcome you to our three sports competition!

Race director: Elmir Miro Hadžialić

The trail consists of 1 lap on the road from Eco village to the village Glavatičevo. Ride is strictly the right side. The trail will be closed to traffic for a certain period of time, and since it is not congested with traffic, it will be safe for bicycle traffic even after the traffic is released. Guards will be placed in critical places to additionally warn the competitors.

The first part of the trail, about 5 km long, is over the Košuta pass, and contains an ascent of up to 22%.

After the first 5 hilly kilometers, 5 relatively flat or wavy kilometers follow. The turn is at the partisan cemetery near the village of Glavatičevo, where the refreshment station is located.

Each competitor is required to make a turn behind the cone, and pass over the chip sensor for the record, in such a way that the judge can record it as well. Refreshments will be provided at the turn. The return is the same way, the first 5km straight / wavy, the other 5km over the Košuta pass.
