EPCA is an official partner of the 27th Spar Budapest Marathon taking place on Sunday 7 October.
This partnership will take the form of a special promotional campaign focused on the “kids run” that EPCA will sponsor and that will be integrated into the mini-marathon (7km).
A special reward ceremony for the 5 winning schools will take place during the EPCA opening cocktail and walking dinner at the Fine Arts Museum on the famous Heroes’ Square in Budapest.
The itinerary of the marathon has been especially designed to avoid the area of the EPCA official hotels, so that the EPCA delegates will not be adversely affected by the marathon race.
This partnership allows EPCA to promote the film “Chemistry : All About You”, showing youngsters and the general public that chemistry is everywhere and that the chemical industry gives the global population access to food, drinkable water, clothing, energy and emission reducing, buildings and transport, communication as well as the technical development matching people’s needs. The film will be broadcasted in the Budapest airport as well as alongside the marathon itinerary in Budapest and on the outside of the EPCA hotels.
EPCA Annual Meeting delegates will have access to special conditions, applicable on a “first come, first served” basis, to participate in the marathon and ancillary activities:
- The first 20 EPCA registrations are free;
- The next EPCA registrations will benefit from a 50% discount on the relevant race registration fee.
