ING Night Marathon
Funds for the Marian Aldred Award are currently raised by women (and yes men) in pink, sponsored to run or walk in the Luxembourg ING Night Marathon.ThinkPinkLux started raising funds through participation in the Luxembourg ING Night Marathon in June 2011.
Marathon, half-marathon and team participants sign up through ThinkPinkLux who then registers the participants. Funds are raised for the Marian Aldred Award through sponsorship money. ThinkPinkLux asks that each participant raises a minimum sponsorship of 100 euros, though we are very fortunate to have many supporters who are able to well exceed this amount. Marathons are gruelling and are not for everyone. Some of our participants run achieving a variety of times and though not really a walking marathon we have permission from ING for our participants to walk if they choose.
Training - Walking/Running Group
ThinkPinkLux organises regular walking/running training sessions each Sunday (excluding school holidays) at 9.30am starting in January prior to the ING Marathon for those who are interested. Details will be posted here on the website and on social media Facebook, twitter and also email. Many from this group in addition to others continue these sessions throughout the year.
If you are interested in joining a group please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
