Dear Runners from Grodzisk Wielkopolski and Citizens of the Twin Towns of Grodzisk Wielkopolski;
The year 2020 proved to be for all of us challenging and unpredictable, we have had to adapt to changes and learn how to do things in new ways, changing the priorities. In spite of the difficulties of the time of pandemic we want to keep doing what we like and enjoy, and we do not surrender to difficulties. Contrary to what some people may expect, the hardships of pandemic inspire us to undertake new challenges, come up with new ideas, and create innovative projects. We are, as always, full of energy to keep running!
Participation in races and running events gives us opportunities to see new places, new trails, new cities, and – what is of most value – allows to meet new people and connect with them, regardless of the place where they live, and their lifestyles. We have experienced ourselves many times the value of those encounters and connections. This is why we have come up with the idea to organize a Virtual Twin Towns’ Race (Wirtualny Bieg Miast Partnerskich), for citizens of Grodzisk Wielkopolski and citizens of the towns Grodzisk Wielkopolski signed partnership agreements with – Twin Cities. We are aware that in all those towns there are runners who participate in running events and organize those events themselves.
We plan for The Twin Towns’ Race to take place on October 24th and 25th in each of the towns listed below:
– GRODZISK WIELKOPOLSKI (Poland),
– BETTON (France),
– DOLYNA (Ukraine),
– BIRZAI (Lithuania),
– MERKSPLAS (Belgium),
– TORRELODONES (Spain),
– DELLIGSEN (Germany),
– BROD (Serb Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina),
-TABOR (Czech Republic),
– GRODZISK MAZOWIECKI (Poland),
– GRODZISK (Poland),
– POSTOMINO (Poland).
Do not forget the date! The registration for the Race begins on September 20th at 8:00 pm.
All the information about the Race can be found in the Terms and Conditions on the website www.twintownsrace.pl. We trust you will join us in the efforts of organizing the Race, we count on you! Without your involvement the Race will not happen.
The Grodzisk Running Club will prepare a dedicated medal and registration number which will constitute a valuable memento of the event.
The Twin Towns’ Race may continue in the next years, time will tell. We believe that the important thing is to start and organize the first one!
