UYN is launching an initiative for each of the three big marathons in Slovakia, Germa-ny and Italy
Beginning with Košice in Slovakia - Europe’s oldest marathon (6th October) - then onto the Gen-erali München Marathon in Munich (13th) and finally the most beautiful 26.2 miles in all Italy, against the stunning backdrop that is Venice (27th). October is running month with UYN at your side!
This Italian sportswear brand is the official sponsor of three huge international events and we’re preparing for our starring role with a full agenda of initiatives aimed at those who just love running.
Highly technical special edition UYN shirt
To mark these three huge events, UYN has created a shirt customised to the colours and logo of each marathon. And it’s not just a basic t-shirt. It’s a highly technical garment that encapsulates the brand’s spirit: a high-quality shirt designed for top performance. Wear it right away in the race and then in your everyday training sessions.
6 October - Košice International Peace Marathon
It’s the oldest marathon in Europe, the second oldest in the world after Boston and it’s been run every single year since 1924. The 96th MMM (“Medzinárodný Maratón Mieru”, or International Peace Marathon), takes place in Košice (Slovakia) on 6 October.
UYN will be there in the expo area from Friday 4 October. During the event, a special guest from the sporting world will be visiting the stand and greeting fans. Marathon, half marathon, relay and inline participants will all receive the UYN shirt - customised for the event - in their race packs.
13 October – Generali München Marathon
It’s one of the largest and most highly anticipated running events in Europe. UYN is co-sponsor and official provider for the 34th Munich marathon (Germany), taking place on Sunday 13 Octo-ber. The route winds its way through the city’s most celebrated landmarks - the Olympiapark and the majestic Marienplatz - all the way to the Olympiastadion entrance, where the roar of the spectators will greet finishers.
On Friday 11 and Saturday 12 October, UYN will be a key feature at the GMM Sport Expo, the event exhibition being held in Munich’s Olympia Hall, hosting a stand just behind the race number collection area. UYN is also the official kit provider for over 1500 members of staff involved in per-fecting organisation and security at the Generali München Marathon.
27 October – Venice Marathon
The charm, the magic, the emotions: taking part in the Venice marathon means running through the passages and over the bridges of a city synonymous with unrivalled beauty and historical in-trigue. For the second year running, UYN will be beside every runner who - on 27 October - takes on this unforgettable waterside challenge.
In the Venice marathon race pack, participants will find a highly technical UYN shirt. We have de-signed it specially for the event in women’s and men’s versions. Last year, huge numbers of run-ners decided to tackle those 26.2 miles, or 42km, wearing the UYN shirt and so had the chance to appreciate the quality of our Italian brand on an epic day of wind and rain.
On Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October, UYN will be greeting all running enthusiasts at our stand in the Exposport Venicemarathon Village in Parco San Giuliano, with fantastic gadgets and run-ning-related initiatives.

Every event will be a chance for athletes and running aficionados to discover the UYN collection. UYN staff will be on hand to demonstrate the technical advantages of the ultra-performance AL-PHA RUNNING range and of the ACTIVYON RUNNING selection, devoted to those for whom running is an unmissable daily opportunity to relax and unwind.
