Hiroshima YMCA 25th International Charity Run
November 23, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Hiroshima YMCA International Charity Run is a fun-filled event that raises money to support children with special needs. If you feel that you’d like to do something good for children in the community while having great fun, this is the perfect event for people of all ages including individuals, families, or groups of friends. The 25th International Charity Run will be held on November 23 (Sat) at Chuo-koen (The large open park near Hiroshima Castle).
It’s a relay race with each team consisting of 5 members, each running one 900m loop of the park. This fun race is perfect for anyone because you don’t win by being the fastest team. Before the race starts, every team estimates their finishing time and hands it in to the reception. The wining team is the team that came closest to their estimated time. Many teams add to the fun of the race by wearing costumes and there’s a prize for the team with the best costumes along with many other prizes as well.
After your team crosses the finish line, delicious tonjiru and a sweet Japanese red bean soup with grilled rice cakes await you. Taking part in the event is not just really fun but is also for a good cause. You will also have a great chance to meet many new people.
The events starts at 10:30am
The final date for registrations is November 13
