First Academic Run

Sofia, 28th October 2011

The Event: The 2011 Academic Run was held in the Borisova Gradina Park in Sofia in October. It was jointly-organised with Sofia University’s Sports Department. The event was sponsored by Adidas Bulgaria, Coca-Cola Bulgaria and Bankya mineral water.

More than 150 present and former students showed up for the 3.5 kilometer run. All of them were awarded a commemorative t-shirt; there were also prizes for the fastest runners.

The initiative was such a success that Aleksander Petrov, Jr. pledged to all the participants that there will be more such runs in the future.
