Song selection for the official play list of the 4th Banja Luka M:TEL half-marathon

Since we wish, for the 12th of May, for everyone to be moved by music, with positive adrenaline, energy and strength we want you to help us create the play list for that day!

Comment below which song drives and motivates you while you run. We will award two of your suggestions with tickets for the surprise concert we are preparing!

Our current working version of the music play list consists of 49 songs that we have found to be some of the most listened to songs during training sessions. We want to come up, with your help, with a 2-hour long list that will motivate all of us during our preparations for the main event on May 12!

You can vote for your favorites at the end of March, on our Facebook page, and at the same time for the song which will be the anthem of the 4th Banja Luka M: TEL half-marathon race.
