About the event
The weekend of the 1st and 2nd of May 2021, the Marrow society welcomes you to an exclusive event to fight against leukemia:
the Leukemia Charity Run
The idea is simple: help us achieve as many kilometers as possible during one weekend
Thanks to our sponsors, every kilometer run will raise funds towards our fight against leukemia. If you would like to support us even further, find your own 'sponsors' to fundraise money for this fantastic cause. Whether you are walking, running, taking part with a wheelchair or a stroller, everyone is invited to take part in this race. Every kilometer counts! The event is virtual, so you can participate from wherever you would like.
How does it work?
In order to participate, click on the "register" icon on our website. You will then be redirected to a page where you can complete your registration. Before registering, you must create your account with Datasport. Once you have registered, you will immediately receive a confirmation email and a second email for uploading your results. A third email will be sent to you within a few hours (maximum 24 hours) and will contain once again the link to download your results and another link to download your personalised bib. Don’t forget to also check your spam for all non received e-mails.
For those who want to shine as a team, it is also possible to register as a group. It is paramount to use exactly the same team’s name as your other teammates. By registering as a team, you are also automatically registered in the individual ranking. Team members do not have to necessarily run together, their respective distances will be summed up, and the total of kilometers will appear in the team ranking.
On the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of May, take the route you want. You choose your distance, as well as your pace: walking, hiking, running, whichever you prefer! It is recommended to keep track of your route using any tracking application (e.g., Strava, Adidas Running, Suunto). On the 1st and/or the 2nd of May you can also participate several times (up to 3 times) as all your kilometers will be summed up. To promote even more the cause you are running for, we invite you to print and wear your personalised bib. Moreover, we encourage you to take photos of yourself, your tracking app or your run and share them in your story on Instagram by tagging us (@leukemia_charity_run).
At the end of your run, you will have to tell us your distance and time thanks to the link received via e-mail on the 28th of April. You can also attach a screenshot of your performance from your tracking application as proof of your result.
There are 4 different ways you can try and win a prize:
1. By participating in our Instagram contest.
To participate you will need to:
- Follow our account (@leukemia_charity_run)
- Share in your story the publication that will be announced on the 19th of April

Participants who meet the above conditions will enter the draw (which will be done on the 3rd of May) for a chance to win one of our great prizes.

2. By sending us a photo of your team.
Take a picture of yourself and your team during your walk or run and send it to us by email or private message on Instagram. If you consent, the images will then be used for the thank you video we will make after the event, which will be shared on our social networks and sent to all participants. Therefore, we ask everyone to indicate in their message whether they agree to appear in this video or not.
The winning team of the draw will be rewarded with a 200 CHF voucher valid in Luigia restaurants.

The 25 people who cover the most kilometers during the weekend will be awarded a prize. Please note that a screenshot of your performance is required to participate in this competition. The first three prizes are:
