Efrar offers runners and spectators labels in memory of loved ones

Runners and spectators at this weekend’s Esentepe Fun, Run and Ramble (Efrar) will be invited to buy a label in memory of loved ones, to be tied to a special tree due to be planted by the end of the month.

In another first for this year’s event — the eighth one to raise funds for the Help Those With Cancer Association (Tulips) — a gala dinner is also being lined up for May 14.

One hundred and fifty diners will be served a five-course dinner, at the Elexus Hotel, with live musical entertainment, at a cost of 175TL per person — for tickets email [email protected]

Meanwhile, organisers and runners alike are counting down to the “main event”, the fun run next Sunday, April 15, at which participants will take on 2km, 5km and 8km distances — as well as an inaugural “ladies only” 5km race.

There will be medals for all competitors, plus tropies for individual category winners, plus a range of stalls selling items from cakes to soap, jams to handicrafts, and more.

Registrations will be open on the day from 8.30am until 11am, when the 8km race gets under way — followed by the 2km race at 10.40am, the women’s 5km at 11am and the general 5km race 15 minutes later.
