NNA - Sidon International Marathon Association organized Sunday its first international marathon on the city's sea front, in cooperation with the Municipality of Sidon and under the supervision of the Lebanese Triathlon Federation, patronized by Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri, represented by MP Bahiya Hariri.
In her word on the occasion, Hariri congratulated the Sidon International Marathon Association for its success in organizing this outstanding event, which included three consecutive races: swimming, bicycling and running.
"We launched 'Sidon-A City for Life' years ago and now the activities in the city are sustainable, diverse and multi-cultural at the heritage, sports, art and entertainment levels, and at the same time Sidon is working on developing its human structure," said Hariri.
Saluting PM-designate Saad Hariri for his continuous support, and for keeping up with Sidon's vitality, Deputy Hariri considered that such care "gives these activities great momentum," hoping that work would begin to promote Lebanon as a whole.
"Sidon loves life and wants consensus, reconciliation and joy," she assured, stressing that each of its citizens and youth must play a role in promoting the city.
