Global virtual 5km for Lebanese Red Cross

Beirut organisers launch charity run for explosion victims


It’s been over a month since the explosion that scarred Beirut like never before and Lebanese people continue to reel under the catastrophe that has hit the country.

For Beirut to heal its wounds and start its recovery path, massive and wide-reaching help is needed. Hence, Beirut Marathon Association is organising a global virtual non-competitive 5km charity race in support of the Lebanese Red Cross, which has done the much needed emergency and humanitarian work on the ground and continues to first handedly aid victims of the explosion.

Registration started on September 17th and will continue for three weeks while donors can run at their convenience between 1 and 8 October. Minimum fee is USD 30 (25 EUR) with the option to donate more to the cause. All proceeds will be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross.
