The new partner of our Kyiv Unbroken Marathon (Kyiv City Marathon) is PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest bank.
Since 2010, we had a tradition of holding the Kyiv City Marathon in the heart of our capital. The first year of the full-scale war changed it, as we could not hold the event. However, on October 1, 2023, Ukrainian athletes will once again race within the Kyiv City Marathon, which will be held for the first time with the support of PrivatBank.
The agreement between Run Ukraine, the largest organizer of running events in Ukraine, and PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest bank, involves multi-year cooperation under the 1+2 year scheme. The collaboration of two powerful agents should give a significant advantage to both parties and contribute to the popularization of sports and running in Ukraine.
“Marathon running is not about simple solutions. It is about planning, hard work, perseverance, and global goals, — Dmytro Chernitskyi, СЕО Run Ukraine, says. — Kyiv City Marathon has been popularizing road running, promoting regular workouts, and developing a running culture since 2010. However, we have a greater goal of forming a healthy, athletic, strong, and resilient nation, and we will be able to achieve this through constant work with reliable partners.
“The Kyiv City Marathon is an important event to support the vitality of Ukrainians. We have a common vision of raising a healthy nation, inclusion, equal opportunities, and accessibility for all, so we are glad to partner in this initiative,” says Gerhard Boesch, Chairman of the Board of JSC CB PrivatBank.
Run Ukraine and the Kyiv City Marathon have always paid special attention to social projects and charitable races. We had free children’s races and the legendary Veteran’s Ten for the ATO and JFO veterans.
This fall, we will not only keep the traditional charitable races but will also include new projects.
PrivatBank is Ukraine’s largest state-owned bank. Today, the bank serves more than 18 million active clients, and 70% of Ukrainians use its services. The bank is a leader in the retail segment and actively implements services for small and medium-sized businesses, it has a powerful digital ecosystem and an extensive network of branches, ATMs, self-service terminals, and POS terminals throughout the country.
PrivatBank’s activity is aimed at the development of the economy of Ukraine, support of Ukrainians, and Ukrainian business even during the war. We simply get it done!
