ATHENS – This summer, get ready for a powerful comeback from the SNF Run. Adapting to virtually unprecedented times, the popular race is going virtual for the first time, inviting us to run wherever we are to support our local hospitals. We’ll keep our distance, but cover greater ones all over Greece, always together and always for a good cause!
To experience the Virtual SNF Run, pick a day between Monday June 15 and Sunday June 21 to run your own 5-km route, then upload your results. You decide where to run: in a park, on city streets, on your favorite beach, on the treadmill, in your garden, or on the stairs at home.
As every year, this year’s race has a charitable mission. When registering, those who wish can choose to support their local hospital. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) will add double the amount contributed by runners, tripling the overall size of the donation.
Whether you run by yourself, with your family, or with your friends, take a selfie on your run and share it with the hashtag #SNFRun. Together, we will create a map covering every corner of Greece with snapshots from the race. Challenge your friends to run with you: “I’m running 5 kilometers for a good cause. So can you!”
On the evening of International Olympic Day, June 23, at 21:00 (GMT+3), announcement of the Virtual SNF Run results will be streamed as part of the Summer Nostos Festival RetroFuture Edition in an event featuring your best snapshots from the race. The event will be presented by iMEdD Managing Director, SNF DIALOGUES Executive Director, and journalist Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
Stay tuned, stay connected.
