For the third year in a row, the team of UAB Juodeliai participated in a mass event “Running for Marijampolė 2016”

Almost 700 participants from all over Lithuania as well as Germany, Poland, Great Britain, South African Republic and Belarus took part in the third running for Marijampolė event. The event that has become a stage of the Lithuanian running cup attracted over 40 different organizations, families, children and seniors, disabled, and there was also a contest for mothers with baby strollers.

Traditionally, the team of the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai, which participates in the action since its beginning (in 2014), joined the running event as well. Every year, UAB Juodeliai is one of the organizations with the greatest number of participants. This year, almost 30 employees and their family members have crossed the finish line of various distances.

There were three tracks at the running event this year: a half marathon of 21 km, 10 km, and 5 km, and a 500 m children and disabled run. 55 prizes were established in the running event in different age categories. Runners in the most interesting suits, families, organizations, and companies with the greatest numbers of participants were awarded.

The mass running event “Running for Marijampolė” is exceptional because it is a non-commercial event, and the funds that are raised every year and not used for the organization of the event, are used to beautify the city of Marijampolė. In addition, it has become a beautiful tradition not only for the residents of the city but also for the employees of UAB Juodeliai who join their forces not only at work but at sports as well!
