The third version of the Beirut Marathon Association’s Women’s race is coming up on June 7, 2015 and it will take place in the historic and scenic seaport city of Byblos (Jbeil). “Rise and Run Forward” is the slogan for this year’s race: it is a call to action to keep moving forward, and to rise to the challenges of every day no matter how big or small. It is a continuation of last year’s “Run Forward” campaign, as we believe that Forward >> is the only way to go.
The Beirut Marathon Women’s race was launched three years ago: the main goal of this race was to engage women in competitive sports through running, and empower them to fulfill all their roles in society. Women from all walks of life, all ages, and all backgrounds rallied and participated in this race that was designed specifically for them. Women are also Peace Runners, and on this day they can bring all of their positive energy forward and run towards a promising future.
The “Rise and Run Forward” event will have 6 races: The 10KM race and 10km Relay for women; however, families are also invited to run together in the 5KM Fun Run and in the 1KM Run with Parent. Husbands, fathers, brothers, sons and friends can all participate in this healthy and empowering activity. Special needs 10 KM (women only) and 5KM races will also be organized for different categories.
NGO’s and charities are all invited to participate and register runners to advocate for all humanitarian and women’s causes. In the previous two years many organizations were able to raise quite a bit of awareness and funds through this race.
Registration is open online at beirutmarathon.org and registration booths are available at all Spinney’s branches and at the Beirut Marathon offices. Registration booths are also open at Beirut Souks, ABC Achrafieh, Jbeil Kiosk & Saida Mall. For corporate teams and NGO registration info kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org
On Sunday June 7th women will “Rise and Run Forward” with the Beirut Marathon Association: Forward towards a healthier life and a bright future where everything is possible.
