Our mission is to organize running events that inspire unity, positively change lifestyles, promote wellness, and provide an experience of challenge, achievement, joy and glory, for the benefit of our nation, both now and for generations to come.

The upcoming event for Beirut Marathon Association in May this year will be the Women’s Race 2014 scheduled on Sunday May 4th2014

Under the patronage of the First Lady of Lebanon

Mrs. Wafaa Sleiman

What will happen May 4th?
Women WILL RUN FORWARD
LEBANON WILL RUN IN SUPPORT
The second version of the Women Race comes back on MAY 4 to take the streets of Beirut by Storm. Following a successful Launch in 2013, the event became a national and regional sport and social phenomena. The idea was born out of the “Power of Sports” and the belief that the values of sports should be spread to all in order to activate a positive change in our world. The main goal of the race is “Empowering Women” through running.

The 10KM WOMEN’S CHALLENGE race for Women only, Age 14+, gives participants a chance to compete against themselves in an environment that creates confidence and brings out inner strength.

The Women’s 5KM RUN FOR CAUSES race open to Men and Women of all ages is a support platform for all reasons women in Lebanon believe in and fight for. This year men and children can partake by Running in Support of their loved ones and the valid foundations of Women Rights. To make the race more symbolic, men will have a customized support message depicting their reason to run rather than a bib number. All 5K participants will not have official timing.

A token of support for the men and a medal for the women will await these supporters at the finish line.

DIFFERENT Reasons, ONE Cause, ONE RUN
Preparations are already under way with the goal of making it a memorable event that shows the competence of the Lebanese women participating in sporting events, and to present our capital of Beirut at its best.
