Since 2012. MTBC "Čiker", in cooperation with touristic organizations from Serbia and Montenegro, has been organizing "Čiker MTB maraton" that has a route which starts in Kraljevo and ends in a certain city in Montenegro. The first year the marathon was a part of the IPA Project "Sustainable Development of Bicyclism ", which was declared the best cross-border project in 2012, and was financed by the EU.

The marathon goals are sport and tourism, i.e. advocating cycling as a sport, bicycles as a means of transport and healthy lifestyle. The marathon also promotes touristic and cultural potentials of the two countries. The marathon lasts for 10 days and passes through the hilly and mountainous regions, visiting on its way touristic centers, as well as cultural and other landmarks on those territories.
