The 20th Edition of Korrika, in support of the Basque language, will take place March 20-April 9th and this year will travel from Otxandio (Bizkaia) to Iruña (Nafarroa). The event organized by AEK (Basque acronym that stands for Coordinator for Basque Language and Literacy/Learning) takes place once every two years and strives to create awareness of the Basque language and raise funds to support AEK centers of instruction. Many Basque entities in the Diaspora also organize Korrika events in solidarity with those in the Basque Country.
