Vitex Running

Congratulations for the 6 Major Marathons!

2 out of 10! And they are “our people”. We are proud of two Vitex executives, members of the Vitex Running Team who managed to be in the 10 Greek runners that have completed all 6 major Marathons in the world that are part of the Abbott World Marathon Majors (Tokio, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago & New York).


Most of us know Vitex as a paints industry which fills our lives with colors and shades in our homes and workspaces. Well, lately Vitex covers not only walls and other surfaces but also...endless distances! Vitex employees from around Greece alongside the participation of friends and partners created ‘Vitex Running Team’.

Vitex Running Team events participation addresses all company employees and also friends, colleagues and customers around Greek territory. These events are vivid and interactive in nature, promote sports and create many joyful moments. We aim to provide reliable information, employee familiarization in new methods of promoting health and wellness and create awareness in important areas that have a healthy impact in our lives.

Under the slogan "Run and Color Greece" and wearing our colorful running gear, the Team harmonically combines color and running. The team’s considerable effort is about improving personal boundaries, testing of strength, searching personal limits and experiencing unique running moments. Our incentives build around teamwork, excellent shape, and a clear mind. Each group meeting is a new effort in order to spread the idea of running sports in our society.
