Dear participants of the half marathon, dear guests of our wonderful city of Lviv!
I welcome you to our beautiful city because your cause is very important and needed. A person doing sports is special since it requires a lot of perseverance, strong will and a desire to win.
I have always admired physically fit people. Since sport disciplines and develops, a person is able to endure psychological stress and is able to work effectively.
Our city sees its task in not just talking about sport. The task of our city is to provide maximum support to the athletes and support events like Grand Prix Lviv Half Marathon.
And the most important reward is the mood we get when we participate in an event like this, the energy that fills you when you are next to such a diverse group of people united by the love to sport and physically active lifestyle.
I wish you all victory. Remember to have a good time in our city after the race, enjoying the incredible atmosphere, tasty coffee and chocolate.
Wishing you well!
Lviv City Mayor
