For a third year, the SNFCC is hosting Penny Marathon’s last 10k, in which participants can run or cycle. You can bring your dog, too, for the last 2k!
Penny Marathon began in 2012 in Athens as an initiative by two Greek-Australians. Although not runners themselves, they decided to start a project to raise awareness of stray animals, whose number exceeds 600 million worldwide. The marathon was named after Penny, a stray dog that, like thousands of others, could not survive on streets of Athens. In support of stray animals in Greece and the volunteers who give their best for them, Penny Marathon participants run, swim, cycle and paddle for a total of 42km.
