Zagreb Advent Run gathered more than 3000 participants

first_img “Zagreb Advent Run was created on the idea of ​​Advent gifts and socializing with loved ones during the holidays. Together with our partners from the company Run Croatia, we made something completely different – a cheerful pre-holiday gathering that has a noble note. ” said Mario Petrovic, CEO of Millennium Promotion and race organizer. Organized by Millennium Promotion and Run Croatia, runners ran through the center of Zagreb on two routes – 5 and 10 kilometers, and 5 kilometers were joined by walkers. As in previous years, the Zagreb Advent Run, in line with the holiday spirit of giving, also had a humanitarian note. This year’s goal was to raise awareness of the importance of year-round responsible behavior in the sun, and part of the proceeds from the race registration fees this year will be donated to the association Healthy under the Sun.  The fastest male runner was Sylvia Thomas, and he ran 5 kilometers in 15:14. In the women’s competition, the winner was Tea Faber, who ran the same route in 18:10. The fastest time at 10 kilometers – 32:57 was Blaž Car Pavlić. Among the runners, the fastest was Mirjana Šimek Bilić with a time of 38:24. Vjekoslav Klarić was the fastest Nordic walker who crossed the route in 30:25, while Marija Žinić had the best time – 35:02 in the women’s competition. Zagreb Advent Run is the only sporting event within the Advent event in Zagreb, as well as an extension of the event that creates great added value.  On Sunday morning, the holiday-decorated center of Zagreb became even more colorful for over 3000 red caps, or more precisely 3150 runners from as many as 34 countries, who were attracted by the Zagreb Advent Run for the fourth time. Melanoma, one of the most aggressive tumors, affects more than two people in Croatia every day. Therefore, it is imperative to encourage citizens to act conscientiously and preventively when it comes to skin health because, despite modern advances in treatment, prevention and early detection of the disease is still crucial for positive prognosis of treatment and thus the lives of patients. Thus, the city of Zagreb has positioned itself as a destination with one of the largest Advent races in this part of Europe, and it is interesting that the race is the only sporting event within the Zagreb Advent.  Considering the number of participants and the visibility of the race, the Zagreb Advent Run is well on its way to becoming one of the most massive races in Europe. Thus, ZAR contributes to the visibility and promotion of the entire Zagreb Advent.  “Zagreb Advent Run is a great motive for many tourists to come to Zagreb and create some beautiful, new memories. Over 3150 runners from as many as 34 countries have registered, and we are especially pleased to register from overseas countries. “, said Berislav Sokač, founder of Run Croatia and organizer of the race. ZDR is another proof of how running can be and is certainly one of the motives for coming, as well as a great tool on how to extend the tourist season. The goal of the donation is for the association to cover the costs of organizing free preventive examinations in areas where there is a deficit of dermatologists. Also, all runners could apply for free preventive moles examinations, where prevention was directly affected. Photo: PRlast_img read more

first_img Published on September 2, 2018 at 4:10 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelman After Northeastern (2-4) outshot and outperformed Syracuse (3-2) for 80 minutes on Sunday, Georgia Allen found herself open 10 yards from the net for a score. In only her second game since returning from the U20 England national team, Allen gave SU its only goal of the day en route to a 1-0 victory. The Orange started the game on the defensive. Because it could not match the speed of Northeastern early, SU was outshot by the Huskies, eight to two in the first 28 minutes.NU had its best opportunity to score in the first half off of a Mikenna McManus corner kick 24 minutes into the game. As the ball crept to the right side of the goal, the Huskies’ Eve Goulet got off a header past SU goalie Jordan Harris. A yard next to Harris, Taylor Bennett sniffed out the potential shot from the middle of the net and cleared the ball to the end line. Five minutes later, Clarke Brown twisted in the air to shoot an off-balance right-footer. While the ball was on target, NU’s Nathalie Nidetch rolled on top of the ball to keep the score leveled.SU opened the second half with a change in the net. On Thursday against Harvard, Harris was replaced after allowing three goals in the second half. Despite not allowing a goal in the first half along with two saves on Sunday, Lysianne Proulx replaced Harris.

Kate Hostage opened the second half with a 14 yarder that was caught by a diving Nidetch. Proulx made her presence known in the 60th minute when she dove right off an Emily Evangelista shot to save a near-goal. Most of the second half was dictated by both team’s backlines, but Proulx was still challenged in the net. In the 83rd minute, Allen took advantage of a mistake in the Huskies’ defense. Off a Sydney Brackett short cross, Allen found herself uncovered from 10 yards out. Allen cocked back her right leg before shooting a missile past Nidetch. As the minutes ticked and the Huskies got desperate, NU couldn’t muster a shot in the remaining time after Allen’s goal. After splitting a pair of games on the road in New England, SU will continue its five-game road trip in Happy Valley when the Orange take on Penn State on Thursday.
