As we wrote last year, the time of pandemic proved to be for all of us challenging and unpredictable. This has been true also this year – 2021. We had to accept numerous changes and learn how to do things differently, adapting new priorities. Despite the difficulties of the pandemic, we wanted to keep doing what we liked and enjoyed most. Contrary to what some people expected, the tough times inspired us last year and still encourage us today to undertake new challenges, come up with new ideas, and launch innovative initiatives.
In October 2020, we organized the first Virtual Twin Towns’ Race (Wirtualny Bieg Miast Partnerskich); we invited Grodzisk Wielkopolski citizens and the towns Grodzisk Wielkopolski signed partnership agreements with – Twin Cities. During two days, 125 runners took part in the Race; some eager runners joined the event last minute after it had already begun. Our invitation got favourable responses from the runners from Lithuanian Birzai, Bosnian Brod, German Delligsen, Belgium Merksplas, and the Polish twin city Postomino.
