Never Give Up
The oldest annual marathon in Europe and the third-oldest in the world is the Peace Marathon, held since 1924 in Kosice, Slovakia. The marathon takes place each year on the first October Sunday (this year’s fell on 4 October).
The course consists of two practically identical circuits and is flat, completely asphalted and traffic free. Leads mainly in the historic city centre and partly through the Anicka Park, where I took all presented images.
The winner, 29 years old Kenyan Samuel Kosgei, missed the course record (2:07:01) by only six seconds.
The 92nd Peace Marathon also marked a new record of participants, more than 11 000 in all races, and from 49 countries.
My project Marathon was featured on MONOVISIONS, online black and white photography magazine. Its mission is to celebrate monochrome visions.
