Pleven Friendship Marathon, 19 May 2024


Competitors from the age of 2 to 84 years compete in the Friendship Marathon in Pleven

More than 500 participants from 16 nationalities took part in 
the seventh edition of the event

The Pleven Friendship Marathon is postponed to 2021

Due to a number of valid reasons such as the coronavirus pandemic COVID-19, the repairs in the central part of the city of Pleven and after an exceptional person left us, the heart and soul of the Marathon – Stanislav Georgiev, it was decided that 2020 will be a Zero year for the event.

He is the founder and main organizer of the Marathon of the Friendship in Pleven, and the 1000km Balkan Charity Challenge, founder of “Begach” Sports club, father of four, and a bright example and inspiration for almost everyone who knew him.
