Greek Runners Rack up the Miles for the Animals

Our runners are passionate vegans and are excited to be representing Viva! and flying the flag for animal rights! 

Back in October 2014 a couple of guys made contact with us expressing a passion for animal rights and saying they wanted to fly the flag for Viva! in their upcoming races.

We didn’t realise the extent of their commitment at this stage, or their endurance.

These boys are considered ultra-runners, to whom a normal marathon is not quite enough. In a similar vein as Scott Jurek, only these guys hold down day-jobs too.

John and Panagiotis signed up for a series of races ranging from half marathon distance to monster 62km mountain event.

And to top it off they had been hit by an earthquake!! Their island of Kefalonia, west Greece, suffered a series of quakes. These two, however, were undeterred and continued their impressive training regime.

John and Panagiotis represent their club “Newfish Runners”. They raised £500 running a number of races ranging from 21km to 62km. 4 Races: 2 mountain(21Km and 30km) races-1 marathon and 1 ultra marathon(62K) Total:135km
