Big races for little runners from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik

Little runners from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik successfully finished the 26th Zagreb Marathon children’s races that took place on Saturday, 7 October 2017.

26th Zagreb Marathon kicked off on Sunday, 8 October 2017. The starting line was at the Zagreb central square and a large number of runners took part. As the race unfolded, the viewing public had the opportunity to learn more about the Association and the BE PROUD OF YOURSELF campaign from our SOS Children's Village Croatia representatives. The campaign, launched to mark the 25 years of SOS Children's Village Croatia, is relevant to everyone who pursues sports, because they all certainly should be proud of themselves and their accomplishments.

The 26th Zagreb Marathon children’s races were held a day earlier, on Saturday, 7 October 2017, and kids from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik were among the participants. Along with the other children, our Lekenik contingent took part in the races for children ranging from preschoolers to sixth-graders, running over distances from 200 to 550 meters. The weather was sunny and warm, so all the little runners truly enjoyed this wholesome Saturday get-together. When they returned to the SOS Children's Village, they all talked enthusiastically about their experience and took pride in their results.

To see how much they enjoyed themselves, please take a look at the photos of the races.
