Best Foot Forward at the 38th Annual Filothei-Psychiko Race
Action Hellas recently got hearts racing at the 38th Filothei-Psychiko race, one of the oldest and most established running competitions in Greece, organized by the Filothei-Psychiko Municipality under the auspices of SEGAS (Hellenic Athletics Federation).
Action successfully secured a great number of event sponsors, including 12 communication sponsors (TV, radio, print and online media) and 7 commercial sponsors who provided their products and services. Action also stood as Press Office for the race, while handing all social media and the event secretariat.
With over 1600 people running through the streets of Filothei-Psychiko in Athens and enjoying the sunshine, 10 members of the Action Hellas team also got their sports shoes on for the occasion, simultaneously completing a 5km walk with the ethos of the occasion in mind; promoting good sportsmanship, overall fitness, and the importance of personal effort.
As children and adults came together for a day of fun, all participants went along at their own pace in a variety of courses including the 5km and 10km race, special children’s races, 5 km walk, 50 metre race for those with disabilities, and 400 metre family race. Drawing in a wide crowd, notable participants included members of the Embassies of Lebanon, Ukraine, Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Philippines, Ireland and Japan, as well as company managers and representatives of well-known associations and organizations from across the board.
