PartnerRe Women’s Race/Walk On October 4th

September 24, 2015

Now in its 18th year, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk will take place on Sunday October 4th, with hundreds of women expected to take part.

Presented by Mid-Atlantic Athletic Club, sponsored by PartnerRe Ltd. and sanctioned by the Bermuda National Athletics Association, the race is 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 $390,000 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.
