During the announcement for the 26th Zagreb Marathon, the organizers also announced that on the day before the main race, Saturday, October 7, 2017, they would also hold children’s races, in which children from SOS Children's Village would take part.

This year, children from SOS Children's Village Croatia will proudly run the Zagreb Marathon with the other runners.

SOS Children's Village Croatia celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, we launched the campaign “Be Proud of Yourself”. SOS Children's Village Croatia is proud of itself and its work, children from the SOS Children's Village Croatia are proud of themselves and we have no doubt that all the athletically-inclined people who live an active lifestyle are also proud of themselves and their accomplishments.

“Be Proud of Yourself” is a message that has its place in the life of every person and every runner proudly taking part in the Zagreb Marathon.
