about BURT

Belgrade Urban Running Team (BURT) was founded in June 2014 by five friends who would casually meet up and start running around the city. After a short while more friends joined, and day by day, this group became a running crew that now has more than a 150 members, who meet for runs on a regular basis all year round. BURT is a community of people that share the passion for running, community with similar values and lifestyles.  


As a team we had the opportunity to visit places around the world, and meet people who are also a part of running crews just like BURT.  We became a part of a global Bridge the Gap movement, that consists of similar running crews from around the world whose main focus, aside from running, is to bring the people from different cultures closer and spread the message of the importance of making a connection where there is a great difference.

442 CREW

BURT, along with Zagreb runners is one of the founders of 442 crew. The 442 crew is also a part of the global Bridge the gap movement, consisting of the Belgrade Urban Running Team from Serbia and Zagreb runners from Croatia, which aims not only to raise awareness about the importance of sport and recreation for health and wellbeing, but also to cross and question the national borders, fight against nationalism and xenophobia and nurture friendship by running.

The Speed Project


The Speed Project (TSP) is a 340 mile (550K) relay race from the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles to Las Vegas and is by invite only. The relay is non-stop, there is no official course or hydrating stations along the road, it runs continuously until teams reach the finish – the famous “Welcome to Vegas” sign on the Vegas strip. This means running day and night through some very rugged and challenging terrain. Each team has an RV and can design the RV any way they like. The teams prepare food, need to stack up on hydration, nutrition and a lot of sunscreen too!

In 2018 among the 38 crews that were running, a couple of runners from BURT, Zagreb Runners and Red Snakes Milan were lucky to join these amazing people, and run this significant distance as one team. The fifth TSP will start on March 29th 2019, with more than 500 runners from 50 different crews and for the first time ever, a team from Serbia was invited to put together a team of runners, friends and supporting members and join this fabulous journey. With everything mentioned above, it goes without saying that TSP gives this opportunity to very few teams on a global level, and being from Serbia as such a small country we consider this a great honour.
