The sixth edition of the BRND WGN & University Ring Road Races will be held at Tal-Qroqq on Sunday 12 March, with half the proceeds being donated to Hospice Malta.
'As in previous editions our aim is to make this event attractive for all by reaching out to serious athletes looking to sharpen their running form mid-season, as well as others looking to keep fit and have fun—friends, family, University staff and students,' organiser Johanna Galea, from Malta University Holding Company Ltd, said. 'Anyone can participate and it’s for a noble cause. It’s also a great opportunity to bring companies together by organising a fun day out for the office'.
Hospice Malta is the official charity of the BRND WGN & University Ring Road Races. It is a non-profit organisation supporting patients with terminal illness and their families, through its many professional services.
Throughout the day, various races will be held including a 5km and 2km running event open to all abilities. An 800m children’s race will also take place around the University athletics track. The day will close off with the much anticipated relay event which requires teams of 4 people to run a total distance of 5km – a favourite amongst offices as well as groups of friends.
