Bonarka Cracovia Mini Mini Marathon
Kids on Start!
Bonarka Cracovia Mini Mini Marathon.
Bonarka encouraged the children to start a sport adventure and together with the organizers invited the children’s edition of the prestigious Cracovia marathon, which took place on 29 April in Cracow Błonia. Before little chicks matured to marathon distance, they faced a few shorter routes. It was not about, or rather wasn’t running about results, but about fun. Already before the year Bonarka took the patronage of this family event. On the eve of the rivalry of adults, it was a great opportunity to warm up and at the same time a foretaste of sporting emotion. Depending on age, the toddlers took part in four different categories of distances. Szkraby (3-4 years) took part in almost “classic” distance 42 … but meters. The gags (5-6 years) ran 100 meters, Ancymony (7-8 years) 200 m, and the oldest Urses (9-10 years) 420 m. Each participant received a commemorative medal. After the competition for small athletes waited for the power of fun in the play area.

We decided in it to ask the crakers what they know about customs, rituals and local traditions. We wondered who is Baba Baba, and what could be drawn from the Sleeve? The Cracovians spoke to us about this and related to Easter. And what came of it. See for yourself!
