Horizont is an NGO which has been successfully organizing sports events in Bosnia and Herzegovina for eight years now. One of those events is Das Ist Walter, regionally known as Downtown race, which hosted hundreds of racers from the region, attracting thousands of spectators in our city. In this manner, we’ve been promoting bicycling, natural resources and untapped tourist potential for years.
We want to encourage people’s devotion to themselves and nature, youth to turn to sports, and replacing concrete jungle with healthier environment.
For the last two years, we’ve been organizing somewhat different, adrenaline-packed project called Days of Revenge, a Hard Enduro race, which goal was to promote this extremely demanding motor-sport, in addition to natural potential of Sarajevo’s surrounding mountains. Top racers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia took part in the project. The first race took place at Sarajevo’s well known daytrip site, Barice, and Bukovik mountain, with 37 kilometers long race track. Second race, featuring 40 kilometers long track was held at two Olympic mountains, Bjelašnica and Igman.
Days of Revenge 2017 will be organized at Bjelašnica, presenting this mountain to the racers in its most beautiful and most extreme light. Arrival of the best regional racers has been announced, and being the best hosts as possible is our mission.
At its core, NGO Horizont’s mission is being dedicated to civic activism. Organizing and promoting these types of events, we want to positively affect the environment we live in. We want to encourage people’s devotion to themselves and nature, youth to turn to sports, and replacing concrete jungle with healthier environment. In cooperation with authorized institutions of Sarajevo Canton, we want Days of Revenge project to contribute to creating better contents which city like Sarajevo can and should offer to its citizens and guests.
By organizing Hard Enduro events, we want to draw attention to motorcycling as a sport that connects sports lifestyle and spending time outdoors.
One of the NGO Horizont’s primary goals is familiarizing nature and sport lovers with this discipline. ‘Hard Enduro’, as a motor-sport discipline is underdeveloped in our country. This is extremely demanding discipline which combines skill, physical, and mental strength. It takes place at locations which are a combination of built polygons with obstacles and extremely demanding terrains. Enduro motorcycles are specialized for challenging and obstacle-rich race tracks, while also being suitable for standard traffic use.
By organizing these events, we want to draw attention to motorcycling as a sport that connects sports lifestyle and spending time outdoors. An incentive to the fans of this sport to move from urban environment to the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina which hold great potential for this sport’s development, is something we strive to provide.
