Lightrun lighting up Maastricht on 11 December

The organisers of the Groene Loper Run and IRONMAN are launching the first ever Lightrun in Maastricht at 19:00 on 11 December. This five-kilometre sports run starts from Winter Wonderland on the Vrijthof and then makes its way through the city centre.

Participants are advised not to don their regular running attire – consider glow socks, fluro tops and flashing lights – anything that can light up the dark winter night. The person with the most special outfit wins a prize and the proceeds of the sporting event go to Stichting De Knoevel, an organisation that grants wishes to terminally ill children. Registration costs 15 euros and can be done online.
