At the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the tragedy of Bleiburg, to be commemorated on Saturday, May 14, 2005, on the Bleiburg field (Austria), the honorary Bleiburg unit in coordination with the Club of Croatian Home Comers from the exile are organising a 650 km long ultra marathon from Medjugorje to Bleiburg. Aleksandar Aco Golo, a marathon runner from Mostar, started this ultra marathon on May 7, 2005, at 9 am in front of the church in Medjugorje. The marathon runner was accompanied by prayer, and the blessing given by Fr. Mario Knezovic. This pilgrim of peace was also given a rosary around his neck, which will accompany him on this long way.
