“Dress code for New Year’s Eve this year: sneakers and running clothes.” Did we hear that right, Stavros Niarchos Foundation? The SNF RUN: 2023 First Run, the very first run of the year, lasts for 3K and kicks off at exactly four minutes into 2023. Just enough time for the fireworks show to give place to the New Year’s Eve party that takes place only a few metres away from the race’s starting point. But hey, eyes on the race people.
There’s a pay-what-you-want entry fee (with a minimum suggested contribution of €5), and last year all donations were double matched by the SNF, thus tripling the amount donated to selected non-profit organisations that support children. Hopefully this will also be the case this year. This year’s two beneficiaries are Karkinaki and the Kids Creative Learning Centers of the Municipality of Kos.
Registration for the SNF RUN: 2023 FIRST RUN opens on Thursday, December 1st.
