Run 4.2 km, 10 km or 21 km at the 10th WORK.UA KYIV HALF MARATHON 2020 ONLINE on September 19 or 20 and get the medal with a quote from the Great Kobzar!

 

In the running season of 2020 the medals of the events of the Ukrainian Majors Running League are dedicated to the anniversary of an event that was significant to the city of the race. Thanks to this, the medal, being the main symbol of the athletic adventure, will not only remind you about your victory, but also will reveal the uniqueness and value of the city you are running for. As you know, the future is impossible without the past.

 

The medals of the anniversary tenth Kyiv Half Marathon are dedicated to the 180th anniversary of the first edition of “Kobzar” by Taras Shevchenko. This collection contained only eight poems, but it marked the beginning of a new era in Ukrainian culture and literature, and made Shevchenko a truly popular national artist. “Kobzar” addressed people in their language for the first time and outlined new horizons for Ukrainian literature. It proved that there are no boundaries, that you can write on “forbidden” topics, that you need to challenge your fears.

 

Participation in the half marathon is also a type of challenge and battle with your fears, which is why it is very symbolic that the medals awarded to the finishers of the 10th WORK.UA KYIV HALF MARATHON will include a quote from “Kobzar”.

Наша дума, наша пісня

Не вмре, не загине…

От де, люде, наша слава,

Слава України!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Quote on the 10 km medal:

 

Наша дума, наша пісня

Не вмре, не загине…

От де, люде, наша слава,

Quote on the 4.2 km medal:

 

От де, люде, наша слава,

Слава України!

Без золота, без каменю,

Без хитрої мови,

А голосна і правдива,

Як господа слово

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope that the medal with the quote by the Great Kobzar will inspire you to new sporting achievements!

Remember the past, run for the future!
