The Belgian embassy ,together with the European Union delegation and other embassies of EU member countries in Bern, plans to participate at the GrandPrix of Bern on 9 May with a team consisting of staff of EU Embassies, family members and other friends of the EU. The slogan of our participation is #Running4Europe. It will be an opportunity for those interested to get together in a more social and sportive context and show presence at one of the largest fun run events in Switzerland.
In the last edition, 31 822 runners from 116 nations participated. The race leading thorough the historic centre of Bern and along the river Aare is said to be the “most beautiful 10 miles in the world”. One can choose to either run the traditional “long Grand Prix” of 10 miles, the Altstadt-Grand Prix (3 miles) or the Bären-Grand Prix for children.
Before the race, we all gather in one place, runners will receive the “EU T-shirt” and a picture of the group will be taken. Afterwards, each of us will run individually. The result of the ten fastest team members of the “long Grand Prix” will be used for the “Firmentrophy” ranking. After the race a social get-together will be organised. More information as regards to location and time will follow.
If you would like to join, please let us know as soon as possible and the latest before the 10th of January. Please indicate your full name, your year of birth and in which run you would like to run. If you know other runners who are interested in joining, let us know too. We are looking for some good runners as well as for runners who like to have fun and create a good team spirit !
