For the first time this year, a 10K run was organized concurrently with the usual 6K SNF RUN. Both races started at the center of Athens, at the Panathenaic Stadium, the hosting ground of the first modern Olympic Games. In addition, the 1K race for the Special Olympics athletes took place.
The race is organized in collaboration with the Hellenic Olympic Committee, and under the auspices of the Hellenic Police. The SNF RUN is made possible through an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. It is organized by the NGO Regeneration & Progress.
The race is part of the Summer Nostos Festival (SNFestival) which took place at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center from June 18th to 25th, 2017.
