We are pleased to announce that Friskis will be participating in the 2020 edition of La Bruxelloise, as in previous years.
23 September 2020
La Bruxelloise is an initiative (usually a race for women or men dressed as women) held for the benefit of research against breast cancer in partnership with the Fondation Saint-Luc. This year, due to COVID-19 the race will be held as a special virtual edition – but we are still looking forward to participating, given the importance of the race to our club and the personal connection we have to the initiative.
Rather than being one race, this virtual edition will take place over the whole of October. After signing up (see details below) and connecting your Strava account, every kilometre that you track while running or Nordic walking during the month will automatically count towards your distance for the competition. Any kilometres count – whether you’re running with Friskis at one of our outdoor sessions, by yourself, or with friends, they will automatically be added to your total.
True to the festive and competitive tradition of La Bruxelloise, there will be prizes for the people who run the furthest, the photo with the most likes and the groups with the most members. So we hope to having as large a team as possible!
How to register?
Transfer the participation fee of 10 euros to the Friskis bank account:
Friskis & Svettis Brussels
IBAN: BE 80 3101 5675 1177
Please indicate clearly in the message: Bruxelloise + first name + family name of each person you are paying for.
Like every year, the 10 euro participation fee goes towards the Fondation Saint-Luc for research into breast cancer. Due to the exceptional circumstances, Friskis will not be covering the participation fee this year. But every participant will receive a 10 euro voucher valid at Jogging Plus stores in Brussels.
The deadline for registration is 20 October – but obviously the earlier you register, the longer you have to accumulate kilometres.
We look forward to participating with a great team and hope to see lots of you at our outdoor sessions throughout October!
