This year the Strasbourg-Europe Races, organised by Strasbourg City’s Sports department, will be held on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May.
Saturday will be entirely dedicated to Nordic walking with a timed competitive race and an untimed nature fun-walk. The half-marathon, 10km, 5km, the European walk and the roller blade session will all take place on the Sunday.
Last year, 43 staff members joined the Council of Europe team for various events. If like them you’d like to take part this year and get the group discount, you’ll need to fill-in, sign, and send your completed application to Fabrice THOMAS (D building – D029) by internal mail before Friday 13 April.
Applications sent after 13 April will be sent back to the staff member who will then need to apply individually.
