This year RunCzech extended its EuroHeroes project for elite European distance runners and the initiative hasn’t gone by unnoticed. At the recent European Athletics Council meeting in Istanbul, European Athletics presented RunCzech with an award for its achievement.
Maryia Badzich was one of 19 women to be nominated by their federations for the biennial Women’s Leadership Award. Badzich’s name was put forward by the Belarus Athletic Federation and she was presented with her award and winning artwork on stage at the Golden Tracks award ceremony in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of October.
For Stefano Baldini, winner of the Olympic marathon title in Athens in 2004, some feelings remain the same, even though 15 years have passed since the greatest day in the Italian’s running career.
The winning piece of artwork which will be presented to all Women’s Leadership Award winners this year has been declared.
The development of the ‘Athens Marathon. The Authentic’ appears unstoppable. The birthplace of the marathon is also increasingly at the heart of the contemporary running movement and the most historic of races is also a five-star certified road race from European Athletics Running for All
