Running 573km in 8 days
“For Katerina” is a tribute to a warrior who fought bravely against an invisible enemy, in an unequal battle that lasted five months.
It will take place to honor all those who “left” this life after battling this disease, to give strength to all those still fighting, and to their families / companions, and to bring awareness to everyone else to not be complacent with preventive checks.
"For Katerina" is not an athletic competition event (running competion), but a symbolic-honoring organization of a running event, which is meant to send out a social message. The runner who runs at the event is exclusively Katerina's husband, Alexandros Georgiou.
Alexandros, as well as the entire "For Katerina" team, participates voluntarily in the event. We do not request, nor accept any kind of financial support.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and for the purpose of avoiding spreading the virus, please do not follow Alexandros in his path, for reasons of public health protection, thus adhering to the measures, meant to prevent and reduce the spread of the disease, established by the government.

As far as Alexandros's and the rest of the team's, which will be accompanying him throughout the route, material support is concerned, you may read more here.
Katerina was a true inspiration in her life and a firm believer in living each day to the fullest. Katerina embodied enthusiasm, determination, joy, perseverance, strength and love.
From a young age he was involved in sports as a football player and long-distance runner. Running made him realize that it is what fullfils him both as a man and an athlete, so he has devoted himself entirely to it..
