Another sign that normal life really will return in 2022 despite the recent COVID wave is that, this coming February, The Monaco Run is back in full force. And it’s for everyone.
Three, two, one, Go and have fun! The Principality of Monaco wants you to celebrate a beautiful weekend to practice sport outdoor to feel better physically and mentally, based on the best sporting values and for a good cause. Monaco Run, after more than 10 editions has become a reference point both for international professionals and amateurs that would like to experience a set of foot races in the evocative setting of Quai Albert 1er in Port Hercules, overlooked by the Prince’s Palace.
Monaco Run’s hospitality area (Running Expo) has become a true meeting place for hundreds of people of any age and nationality, united by their common sporty spirit. There is something for everyone, from 8 years old and up.
This event, in fact, organized by the Monegasque Athletics Federation has increased its popularity more and more, during the various editions, including among Olympic athletes
Pink Ribbon Walk
It is essential also to take part in the Pink Ribbon Walk which is the most special occasion to motivate all women, both globally and in the Principality, to make a regular check-up in order to prevent this pathology and it is also a sign of solidarity towards whom who suffer – the more we talk about it the better it is.
