SNF RUN: 2024 FIRST RUN - Εικόνα

Starting off the new year on the right running-shoe-clad foot

As the change of the year approaches, some people set specific resolutions, while others follow wherever the new year leads. But if there’s already a path made for you, why not let it show you the way?

This year, find your auspicious New Year’s beginning at the starting line of the SNF RUN: 2024 FIRST RUN, organized by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) in collaboration with nonprofit Regeneration & Progress. The three-kilometer route around the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) Christmas World is sure to fill the first moments of 2024 with positive energy, laughter, and unforgettable memories!

Run in the first race of the year, right after the spectacular fireworks show and just before the big party in the Agora!

The SNF RUN: 2024 FIRST RUN is open to all and is non-competitive in nature. However, official times will be recorded so that all runners can track their performance as they achieve the first goal of 2024.
