Before the Christmas rush really sinks its teeth into our schedules, Dro.Me.A racing together with the Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (Pasykaf) gives runners the chance to get out and participate in a friendly race to promote healthy living.
The race, on December 2 at 10am at Athalassa National Park in Nicosia, is the annual FxPro Run with Us race. This year marks ten years of the running event, and will feature a five and ten kilometre race, and also an 800 metre run for children up to 14-years-old and a five-kilometre charity corporate run.
The registration fee is €10 for the five kilometre race (for ages 15 and up), €15 for the ten kilometre race (for ages 16 and up) and €150 for the five kilometre charity corporate race for 20 people (for entries over 20 people the fee is set at €5 for every extra person). The children’s 800 metre run is free of charge and registration will be done on the day of the event from 8.30am. Parental consent is required for those under 18. Registration for the five kilometre and ten kilometre races may only be done online via www.dromearacing.com.
The race will begin from the Latsia entrance to the park, near the roundabout of the Nicosia General Hospital.
Race numbers will be available for collection on the morning of the race between 8.30 and 9.30 and all participants will receive a finisher’s medal.
The ten kilometre race is dedicated to the memory of Kostakis Loucaides, a former BoD member of the Cyprus Sports Organisation (CSO) and former champion athlete. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Pasykaf Cyprus.
The aim of the event is to promote social sports, boost sports culture and pave the way towards a more active lifestyle in an effort to prevent severe diseases such as cancer.
