At Sofia's Rakovski Stadium, the ultramarathoner Krassimir Georgiev is facing a gigantic endeavor to tow a vehicle weighing 2,300 kilograms for 27 and a half hours. He is taking up this challenge in the name of a noble cause - to raise funds for a mental health foundation. "Even if acid rain falls, I will do what I came for," the ultramarathoner told bTV regarding the torrential rain over the capital this morning. 

During the sports event Krassimir Georgiev will rest every 400 meters, and the final is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Admission to the event is free and funds for the charity cause will be collected in boxes at the stadium.
