RunFest is an exercise event that is arranged in Finland for the second time in August and September. RunFest is a casual event primarily meant for companies and organizations, and the aim of the event is to increase team spirit in the workplace and encourage people to exercise.
Also charity is an important part of the event: RunFest donates at least one euro to charity for each kilometer a team walks or runs. Baltic Sea Action Group has been chosen as one of the donation destinations of RunFest.
This year RunFest is arranged in Tampere and in Turku in addition to Helsinki. The event includes a relay race, in which each team member must run or walk for at least 4.2 kilometers. After the relay race teams can have a picnic. During the picnic team members will enjoy good music, food and each other’s company.
