Discover University Fun Run/Walk and RelayThis year an old University event will be revived in the form of a Fun Run/Walk & Relay, which will be held during the Open Day of Discover University on Sunday, the 10th of November 2013. The event will be open to University staff, University students and the general public.

The entry fees for the event are €7 for the 5km fun run, €5 for the 2km fun run/walk, €20 per team of 4 runners for the 5km relay and €3 for the children’s fun run. Half the proceeds from these events will be donated to Hospice Malta, the official charity of the University Fun Run/Walk & Relay.

The event will be held over two different formats: individual or team event (relay). In the relay, groups of four participants will team up to run a total of 5km and contend for the top spots, making it a perfect team building activity. There will be two distances for the individual event (2km and 5km) and participants can choose to walk or run the 2km event. An 800m fun run for children will also be held.

A commemorative medal will be presented to all finishers. There will also be trophies for overall and University winners and a prize for the best fancy dress costume (adult and child).

The meeting point is the University Athletics Track, Tal-Qroqq. The 5km fun run will kick off at 11:00 hrs, followed by the 2km fun run/walk at 11:15 hrs, the relay at 11:45 hrs and the final event, the children’s 800m fun run at 12:30 hrs. This will be followed by the presentation of awards.

Registration forms are to be received by Friday 1st November 2013.

Late registrations will be accepted until 30 minutes before each event (at the venue), but anyone applying after 1st November will not be guaranteed a commemorative medal.
