Represent the Basque Country in the NYC Marathon!

2014 October 16

Basque athletes participating in the New York marathon on November 2, have the opportunity to run this renowned race representing the Basque Country.

All those who are registered to participate in this memorable event and wish to wear the shirt of Euskadi during the Marathon are invited to attend a reception in New York where, in addition to having the opportunity to meet other Basque athletes, they will receive a t-shirt designed by the Basque Athletics Federation for this special occasion. Athletes will also get ikurriñas which can be used both by the runners riders during the event and by family and friends, to cheer them on along the way.

To attend the reception, Basque athletes should send their contact information (name, e-mail, telephone place of residence and emergency contact) to the following e-mail address fvaeaf@euskalnet.net . The deadline to register is Sunday, October 26, 2014.

This initiative is open to people living in Euskadi, as well as members of the Basque diaspora settled anywhere in the world, provided they are registered to run the New York Marathon.

 The project is a collaboration between the Basque Federation of Athletics, the Directorate of Youth and Sports of the Basque Government and the Delegation of Euskadi in the United States.
