The Romanian Olympic Foundation

The Romanian Olympic Foundation says “GO MARATHON”! Join the Romanian Olympic Foundation Team at the Bucharest Marathon!


You’ve seen them in the spotlight, on the podium, you believed in them and they didn’t disappoint you. We are talking about Romanian athletes, people who have struggled to achieve incredible results for our country. You’ve considered them invincible heroes, but some of them suffered serious injuries during their training and had to give up their career in sports. Others, because of their age, are suffering from serious health problems. Now, in these difficult moments, we wish to stand by their side and show them our support. So in October we will be running for them, for the Romanian athletes in need. Join us! What is the Romanian Olympic Foundation?

  • A non-profit, non-political and non-governmental organization, founded in order to find means of financing for Romanian Olympic sports.
  • Through the projects developed, the Romanian Olympic Foundation supports the development of young Romanian athletes and also supports the teams that represent our country at national and international sports competitions. The Romanian Olympic Foundation is also supporting Romanian athletes who need help during difficult moments in their lives.

Why run for the Romanian Olympic Foundation Team?

  • You will have the chance to be on the same team with important Romanian athletes that will join us for the marathon.
  • This way you can really help former national, world or Olympic champions, people who have worked in the sports industry and are now facing serious health problems.
  • The funds raised by you will help them have a normal life with the support they need.
  • With your help more than 50 people will receive, for one year, financial assistance for the purchase of drugs, social pensions or different surgeries in the country and abroad.
  • With your help we can raise the 50,000 euros needed.
