Now in its 17th year, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run &Walk is presented by Mid-Atlantic Athletic Club (MAAC), sponsored by PartnerRe Ltd. and sanctioned by the Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA). One of the few all female event on Bermuda’s sporting calendar, it includes a 5K race for women, a 5K walk and a 2K run for girls under 15. The goal is female fitness, health, safety and self-esteem—and all proceeds go annually to a cause that promotes these values.
Since 1998, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk has raised more than $400,000 for female-related causes in Bermuda, including programmes to fight heart disease, confront physical abuse, support rape victims, educate teenagers, combat breast cancer, and fund equipment and initiatives supporting the treatment of women’s health
2014 marks 17 years of support for women’s causes in Bermuda and this year, all entry fee proceeds (matched by title sponsor PartnerRe Ltd.) will go directly to the Bermuda Diabetes Association.
Join the tradition of the last sixteen years and walk or run the 5K route between Botanical Gardens and Lovers Lane, Paget, to help support this important women’s cause. After the race, relax at the Gardens and enjoy a nutritious breakfast available to all participants. Race awards include thousands of dollars in prizes for all age categories, plus fantastic draw prizes and Grand Draw prizes. Draw prize winners must be present at time of draw.
