South Tyrol was the first region to implement lockdown and the first to relaunch its economy and businesses. It also wants to be the first region to restart and to do so it needs the help of all heroes who just like you have learnt to love these places by cycling on their mountains, specifically on the trails of the HERO Südtirol Dolomites, the toughest mountain bike marathon in the world.
Every little helps: even you can contribute with that same determination which characterises a true HERO spirit!
By taking part in the SPORTHILFE HEROES RUN initiative: it will take place between the week of 27 June to 5 July 2020, calling on everyone to run, walk, or cycle on a bike or mountain bike to reach the 100,000 km goal! All the kilometres can be tracked and recorded on the free SPORTHILFE HEROES RUN app available for iOS and Android.
Run, walk, or cycle on your own or with your family, at your own pace, on the roads and paths that you love the most towards one common goal. You can also take part individually on behalf of a sports club or a company - always in compliance with social distancing and safety rules currently in force in the province of Bolzano.
The initiative is promoted by Sporthilfe Alto Adige, a non-profit organisation whose aim is to help and support young, talented South Tyrolean athletes. SPORTHILFE HEROES RUN 2020 wants to homage all those true heroes that have fought on the front line during this difficult health crisis by taking care of the entire community: doctors, nurses, pharmacists, the police, civil defence but also shop assistants and retailers, and our families, of course!
After all, let’s not forget that families played a pivotal role in facing this health crisis: mothers and fathers (parents, educators) had to become teachers, classmates, and sandbox friends from one day to the next. That is why we believe they deserve our ‘thank you’, or rather 100,000 of them, to the tune of the kilometres they can contribute to by participating in the SPORTHILFE HEROES RUN project.
An active way of relaunching wellbeing which also promotes sports across all levels - from amateur to professional athletes - while also raising funds for South Tyrol’s next generation of athletes!
