NEW DATES for Bucharest RUNNING CLUB Events
Dear Running Community,
We all go through difficult times and challenges that we certainly did not anticipate. We are aware of the responsibility we have and the decisions we have to make.
Thus, together with our sponsors and partners, we consider that the current situation does not give us the certainty of conducting our first two events – Volkswagen Bucharest HALF MARATHON and UNIQA Insurance Bucharest FAMILY & 10K – safely, at the dates announced initially (May 9-10, respectively May 30).
The new deployment dates will be as follows:
– UNIQA Insurance Bucharest FAMILY & 10K: August 22, respectively
– Volkswagen Bucharest HALF MARATHON: the weekend of September 5-6.
The running date of Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest MARATHON remains unchanged – the weekend October 10-11.
We are convinced that we will have a great time together and we will meet healthier and stronger.
In the case of the two deferred events, all registrations made so far remain valid, the runners being automatically transferred to the new dates (August 22, respectively September 5-6).
For the situation in which the new running data of the Bucharest RUNNING CLUB competitions are incompatible with the personal plans of some of the runners already registered, they have the following options:
– Transfer of the tax to the same race, at the 2021 edition of the same event (May 8-9, 2021, for Volkswagen Bucharest HALF MARATHON, respectively May 29, 2021, for UNIQA Asigurarii Bucharest FAMILY & 10K);
– transferring the fee to another runner, without any additional processing fee.
“We respect and support the decision to reschedule the competition, maintaining our optimism that, until then, things will go back to normal. See you soon and in good health.” said Anelise MOLDOVAN, Marketing & Communication Manager, Volkswagen.
. “We are thrilled to be with the Bucharest Running Club Association for the fifth consecutive year. Together, we continue to support education for a healthy and balanced lifestyle through sport, as the official sponsor of the UNIQA Asigurări Bucharest Family & 10k event. Each time, the runners have shown a lot of perseverance and willingness, energy that we are confident that we will find again in this year’s edition. Until then, we launch to all the challenge to remain responsible and creative to find the best ways to stay healthy and fit at home, in the family”. Said Nadia PIETREANU, Director Strategic Sales Development, Marketing and Communication,Uniqa Asigurări.
“We all go through a difficult period, which we can overcome well only by staying united. We are sponsors of the Bucharest International Marathon and partners of the Bucharest Running Club Association for 12 years, and together we managed to organize for the runners in Romania and abroad some of the most memorable running races. We look forward to seeing you again this year. Until then, our recommendation is to train in your own homes and take care of your health and those around you.” stated Corina VASILE, Communication &PR Director, Raiffeisen Bank Romania.
