Join Run 4 Lesvos
The majority of physical events (including the Olympic Games) have been cancelled in 2020, thereby disrupting the plans of millions of runners across the globe.
But apart from the athletic community being affected, 2020 has left devastation in its wake in every area of life around the world. One such tragic event is the devastating fire on September 8 that wiped out the entire migrant camp on Lesvos Island, Greece, leaving more than 13 000 migrants uprooted and helpless.
Fortunately, no lives were lost, but the people of Moria migrant camp are still in desperate need for help. Euro Relief, a program of Hellenic Ministries in Greece, stepped in and served the homeless people. As people had lost literally everything in the fire, the needs of the people of the camp have escalated alarmingly..
Now you can, through your running, extend a helping hand to people in dire need. Your participation in the Run 4 Lesvos, Greece race, will directly help in the relief work on Lesvos Island, and elsewhere in Greece. By making an extra donation on top of your entry, you become a partner in the extraordinary work taking place in Greece to help destitute refugees.
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) anywhere. There is no start or finish point, so you can run it from any location you want. Complete a virtual 5 km, 10 km or challenge yourself (and your friends) and complete our virtual half or whole full marathon. Join fellow runners around the globe in this challenge.
You don't have to be a pro to participate in this run. There are four different distances for which you can register, so that there is a challenge for everyone. You also have the option to walk the distance you registered for. In addition, you can participate on any date between December 20th and February 28th, so that you can choose a suitable time yourself. Submit your results by latest 28 February 2021.
Please partner in the work with a generous donation. We, and more specifically the recipients, will highly appreciate your help!
Please make sure to follow social distancing and your local guidelines. Stay safe and keep moving!
