We race as one

You are what you eat they say, and as who we are starts in childhood, it is a good place to start eating healthily.

To promote this idea and to raise funds to promote healthy nutrition for children, Alphamega Hypermarkets are organising the Run as One race.

The race will start and finish at the Alphamega Hypermarket parking area in Engomi. The route is five km long and will be preceded by a 1 km dash, in which children and adults can participate. Prizes and other gifts will be given to the top three contestants in the Men and Women category.

The participation fee for adults and teenagers is €10 payable during registration at Alphamega Hypermarket on the day (open one hour before the start of the race) and €12 for online registrations. Participation for children under 12 is free.

All proceeds from the run will be used for promoting the significance of healthy nutrition and for funding a personalised nutrition programme, especially for children from nine to 12-years-old.

All participants over 12 will receive a complimentary collectible t-shirt of the race, a participation number and a coupon for one free drink.

All participating children will receive a race number, a participation diploma, a coupon for a free drink and fruit as a gift offered by Alphamega Hypermarkets.

After the race, at 7pm, all those good vibes created from running can be used during a live performance by the Greek band Onirama. There will also be a number of other activities, including a play area for children.

You have until tomorrow to register online. To do so go to
