Famillathlon is a celebration for the entire family, dedicated to the healthy way of living and sports. It was first started by French enthusiasts, who wished to successfully combine family time with exercise. In 2008, a representative of Association Parents received the Famillathlon Charter in Paris, which lists the main principles of the initiative – family, harmony, communication between the generations.
The main aims of Famillathlon are:
- Spreading the popularity of sports as a tool to improve communication within the family;
- Increasing the social and educational role of sports;
- Consolidation of the relationship between family and sports.
The first Famillathlon in Bulgaria took place in 2009 in Sofia and since then, it has been held every year in many towns all across the country.
