Event part of family fun weekend incorporating stair run, wellness activities, music and healthy cuisine
Macao, March 18, 2019: Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, The Parisian Macao will stage the second Light The Night Run charity vertical race up its iconic half-scale Eiffel Tower on Sat. April 13 at 7 p.m. as part of a wellness and fitness fun weekend (April 13-14) incorporating health-orientated activities, education, music and cuisine. This year the event has been extended to two days.
Entrants can register at the General Association of Athletics of Macau (AGAM) office from now until March 30. More information can be found online at www.ParisianMacao.com/light-the-night-run.
Light The Night Run invites professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts looking for a unique challenge to attempt to climb the 750 steps to the tower’s 37th-floor observation deck finish line. Last year the Full Run booked out in the first two days with over 530 contestants registering to take part in the run around The Venetian® Macao and The Parisian Macao before tackling the challenging ascent, or the Tower Fun Run which incorporated only the tower climb.
This year the event is aiming to secure 600 contestants for the Full Run, so runners are advised to register early. The challenge has also been ramped up, with participants now required to run twice around The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao before taking on the tower. The Tower Fun Run remains unchanged.
All registration fees for the event will be donated to Macau IC2 Association to sponsor its upcoming Art for Community event, and to Caritas, Macau to allow its users with restricted mobility to gain free access to its stair climber service and make it easier to get in and out of their apartments.
The first association of its kind in Macao to be led by members with intellectual disabilities, Macau IC2 Association is a self-help and non-profit organisation formed in 2016. IC2 (I can too) offers regular training courses and organises events and visits for its members, providing a platform where they can develop and learn to express their feelings, needs and ideas.
Speaking at the launch, Dr. Wilfred Wong, President of Sands China Ltd., said, “After the response to last year’s event it was clear there is a huge interest in health and fitness in Macao. We are delighted to again stage the Light The Night Run, where Macao residents, guests and visitors can enjoy a range of fun activities, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Eiffel Tower where the demanding races are taking place. As well as promoting wellness and a healthy Macao community it also raises funds for Macau IC2 Association and Caritas Macau, two key local charities.”
Events of this calibre are not possible without the support of the local community and official sporting bodies, and The Parisian Macao is again partnering with the General Association of Athletics of Macau to develop local sports and culture and raise the health of Macao citizens.
All competitors will receive a special memento from the day including a participation certificate, while prizes will be awarded to the winners in each category. Winners can enjoy luxury getaways at The Parisian Macao, dining and spa vouchers and Cotai Water Jet round-trip tickets.
