Race news Košice Peace Marathon

29 April 2021, 10am

Young and old run together in Slovakia

Unity of generations

Košice Peace Marathon
Sun 3 October 2021


Anyone who looks closely at today's calendar will find that April 29 bears the adjective "European Day of Solidarity between Generations."

Well, to be honest, we would hardly find a better example of such fellowship in people’s leisure activities as a marathon, or running events in general. It is almost the only sports discipline in which all generations of athletes will meet at the same starting line. And there is much more to it. They compete in a fair play manner, encourage and advice each other, and selflessly hand over a glass of water.

There is no more astonishing view than the one on the finish line, which, with a big smile as a manifestation of inner satisfaction, is being passed by the young, those in their prime and even those whose wisdom and balance are apparent even without their silvered hair.

Family cohesion and generation unity has been tested the hard way in recent months. But they sticked together the same way they will stick together again, facing the challenge of overcoming a marathon. All over the world. And on October 3, definitely in Košice as well.
