Good news everyone!
We are pleased to announce that Friskis&Svettis will participate with a team of Runners and Nordic Walkers in the 11th edition of La Bruxelloise, a women’s charity race in Brussels, on 31st October 2021 at 10:30 AM.
Friskis would like to encourage as many of it's members as possible to participate in this worthy cause by running or walking in this race while proudly wearing your Friskis&Svettis t-shirt. You can sign up for the race directly on the Bruxelloise website. The cost is 15€ for adults and 5€ for children.
La Bruxelloise is a race aimed at women (or men dressed as women) for the benefit of research against breast cancer in partnership with the fondation St-Luc. This year it will once again take part in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert at the Fallon Stadium. As part of La Bruxelloise participants can choose take part in a 3km, 6km or 9km run depending on their preferences. Nordic walkers are also welcome and encouraged. There will also be a race for kids (ages 7-12) of 1420m. Friskis will have a stand to help support it's participants (so you can leave your kit while you race) and it will also be in charge of the warm-up before the race.
Do you want to join? Then please sign up for the race directly on the Bruxelloise website and be sure to wear your Friskis t-shirt on the day of the race. Also please be sure to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the distance you want to run so that we can keep track of how many participants we can expect. Or if you don't want to participate in the race but would still like to help by volunteering to man the stand that's would be most appreciated.
