This Sunday (03.09.17), teams of runners from various Łódź based companies will once again gather in an attempt to claim the title of fastest team in the 5-runner relay race, but more importantly, to help those in need.
This will be the fourth edition of the popular Business Run in Łódź. Since 2014, the event has become increasingly popular and has manifested itself as an inherent part of the annual Łódź events calendar.
This year, 400 teams consisting of 5 runners will take part in the Business Run with each runner covering the distance of 3.8 kilometers in a 5 run relay race.
While each team will be out to seek glory for their team and the company they work for, the main aim of the Business Run is to help those in need of assistance. The run supports those who are in need of help and a prosthesis in order to continue to lead a normal life after amputations. Through the fees for starter packs and voluntary contributions, support will reach up to 16 people under the “Pomagam bardziej” initiative.
– The result is not important, participation and integration are important. We are all one community. In Łódź people like to run. Let us show once again that Łódź can do it! – said Łódź President Hanna Zdanowska.
