OK race, could use improvement. (about: 2010)|

| 1 Belgrade Marathon
The Belgrade course is not very pretty. Course was mostly flat with a few hills at the beginning and end. Water, Gatorade-like drink, and bananas were on the course, and distributed well. Bring your own gel though! Locals pay around 750 Serbian Dinars while everyone else pays 3000 Serbian Dinars. That was a bit strange to me. At every iInternational" race I've run in, everyone pays the same price except the Elites. The t-shirt was crummy - no Dri-Fit-like shirt, which most European races have these days! And no chip! What did the 3000 Dinar entry fee go to? The kilometers were not all marked, which left you wondering your pace. Half marathon was marked only till 8K, and then the rest was just a guess. I could not see the pacers until later in the race, as they did not carry flags. Weather was good - in the 70's with a bit of wind. I don't think I will return next year.
