Uusi Lahti-run and Salpausselkä ring

Sunday 26.5.2019, at 12:00

  • Kids ALKU-run at 11:15

The Event returns for spring!

New Lahti-run has a long tradition as a energic spring-time running event.

There are officially timed half marathon and 10 and 5 kilometers runs in magnificent sceneries of Lake Vesijärvi – very much same routes that International Ironman-event in last July.

New Lahti-run suits perfectly for top fit ironmen as well as gently forwarding athletes.

As a new option there is Salpausselkä ring to Tapanila, which suits very well for example as program of companies’ employee’s wellbeing day. This event is not a competition.

Another new event is meant for children because for the first time there is Lasten Alku-run, which is sponsored with our co-partner Fazer Alku.

The main sponsor again for the events is again Uusi Lahti -newspaper. 

The profit of the events will be used entirely for children’s exercise. Almost a thousand children participate to athlete-schools, exercise groups, schools, summer camps, wrestling and other events. Ahkera is leading youth athlete clubs and we have high-quality exercise activities for kids and grown-ups.
