2nd Crete Half Marathon… The Cretan sport event sponsored by Savoidakis Company!
There are really no words to describe what we experienced yesterday during the 2nd Half Marathon of Crete at Arkalochori!!! We are grateful towards people for honouring and trusting us to play our own special part in such an exquisite and excellent event. It’s a great honour for us to join the 2nd Half Marathon of Crete which is ranked among the most important organizations of Greece as one of the most recognized events in the world thanks to the excellent collective work of the organizing committee. Congratulations to the organisers for their great love not only for sports but also for their native place. It is such a great accomplishment the fact that they offered to more than 2000 athletes from around the world, Greece and every corner of Crete, a number of magical runs within the villages. Moreover, the colourful villages demonstrate the authentic Cretan hospitality that many of us – living in urban centres – have forgotten about. But mostly we had forgotten the fact that there are life and pulse, as well as vision and great ideas in these Cretan villages and namely Arkalochori, Vonni, Choumeri, Galata etc. Congratulations to all of you!!! We promise that every year or else, every first Sunday of October, we will be there supporting you because your “friendship” has got a lot to teach us!!!
