“As we run, we become,” said American ex-marathon runner Amby Burfoot.
The first DLRC run, which features 3k, 5k, and 10k routes, is a brilliant opportunity for you to begin, or continue your running journey. It is open to everyone, regardless of their fitness. Everybody starts somewhere, and we here at DLRC would be ecstatic if you began your journey with us. View this, not as a run or a race, but as an avenue to meet your friends or make new ones; everyone running, walking, hopping, or skipping together.
DLRC has long been the focal point in ensuring equal opportunity for all, and this run is another chance for individuals of all ages and abilities to come together as a community - a community that cares. One that cares, not only for their own fitness, or the environment, but for those less privileged as well. This DLRC initiative will see all proceeds go to the Caring Hands Trust, an NGO that looks to house, educate and nurture any child that needs it. This run will also be completely environmentally friendly with zero trash generation or wastage. It aims to set a standard for future community runs to be fully environmental - just like DLRC.
To make this journey more seamless for you, water, as well as first aid, will be well taken care of by DLRC. All you need to focus on is the route. We will also be providing a hearty meal at the finish line, cooked by our neighboring community, no less.
Before you gear up and head out on Sunday morning, please make sure you follow some simple protocols (to maximize your own safety and enjoyment):
1) Hydrate and carry a refillable water bottle. Water stations are present along the route but we understand if you do not wish to break your stride.
2) Wear comfortable sportswear (a white t-shirt is preferable) and appropriate walking/running shoes.
3) Bring all your cheers, smiles and energy. There’s nothing like working up a good sweat to kickstart your Sunday.
And if you haven't registered yet, please do! Every runner counts!
