Get Even with Diabetes Run – virtual edition!

2024-01-22 11:37:00

 

Hundreds of participants wearing our original orange T-shirts? It's a signature feature of our "Get Even with Diabetes" Run! We will hold the 18th stationary edition of the run in the streets of Warsaw on 28 January. However, the virtual run starts today! You can still register online and add your time to the pool!

 

What is the virtual run? It's not a digital race you need to complete on your electronic device screen. The main idea is that you can register online and complete the 5 km distance at any time and location between January 22nd and 28th, 2024. You can share your results in our mobile app with other participants. If any of your New Year's resolutions included any of the following keywords: "active", "sport", "health", or "being fit" - we offer you some extra motivation! Join our initiative and run for a good cause!

There are three ways to participate in the "Get Even with Diabetes" Run organized as part of the 32nd Grand Finale programme:

  • take part in the stationary run through the streets of Warsaw. It will take place on 28 January 2024 at noon – the registration has now ended
  • sign up for the virtual run. The participant indicates the date and time as well as the place of the 5K run (it has to be sometime between 22 and 28 January 2024) – you may still register online
  • join the run organized by your local Collection Centre. The Collection Centres individually organize the registration procedure for local events.

 

You can still register for the virtual run through the SlotMarket.pl platform. The organizer of the run is traditionally Sport Evolution.
