Welcome to the second BCS 5K FUN RUN! We are glad to be back in action.
This will be a pre-sunset run at Lagoa on Sat 16 Oct. We will gather at the lawn – next to Terrazza Garden restaurant (near the swan paddle boats and pier). There will be someone with a BCS banner.
The route will start in the the clockwise direction for 2.5km by rounding the curve and on to the straight section, parallel to Ipanema. After rounding another large curve (Leblon/Gavea), our friendly BCS volunteers will be standing at the exact point where you turn around for the return 2.5km leg, tracing the route back to the start/finish line. Our volunteers will offer you water at the half-way mark.
This event is exactly what is says on the tin, a ‘Fun Run’ and the objective is to enjoy a healthy activity whilst admiring the beautiful view. Healthy competition is one thing but we recommend that you run at a pace which is comfortable for you.
Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 male and female finishers!
Please arrive at 16:00 which will give us sufficient time for introductions and a few light stretches.
After the run, we will go to a nearby bar for drinks. If you would like to join for drinks only, please arrive at the meeting point before 17:00.
A small water bottle will be handed out at the half way mark – please dispose of these shortly afterwards – there will be a volunteer with a bin bag to collect your empty bottle. Please do not throw your bottle on the track. Water and bananas will be available at the end.
You may wish to bring a cap and sunglasses.
The R$20 donation covers the basic costs of organising the run. If there is anything left over, it will be added to the BCS events fund.
Date + time: Sat 16 Oct, 16:00 for 16:30 start. Sunset Drinks from 17:00.
Duration: 20-50 mins depending on whether you walk, jog, run or sprint!
