Ladiesrun: ladies only!
The Ladiesrun is one of the annual running events in Rotterdam, like the Bridge Run and the Rotterdam Marathon. The special thing about the Ladiesrun is that only women are allowed to participate!
5 / 7.5 / 10 kilometer track
During the Ladiesrun the runners can run three distances: 5, 7.5 or 10 kilometers. The event starts and finishes at the Ahoy multi-functional venue in Rotterdam and follows a track through the Zuiderpark, a green stretch in the South of Rotterdam. Spectators can support the runners everywhere along the track for free, but it's especially fun at the finish line, where a female DJ will play some stimulating beats. The Ladies Run Rotterdam offers a professional treatment facility as well. Participants (over 14) pay from €18,50 and become a goody bag and a free drink. These regular tickets are sold out early, but the €40,00 VIP tickets are always available.
Ladies Fair Rotterdam Ahoy
Besides the Ladiesrun itself, there are a lot of different stands and acts especially for women at the Ladies Fair in the Ahoy multifunctional building. Admission is free. Ladies Only is one of the key features of the Ladiesrun. After the finish there will be an award ceremony and a speech from the charity organization of the Ladiesrun, the Pink Ribbon foundation.
Sponsoring Pink Ribbon
During the Ladiesrun you are not just running for yourself, but also for charity. It makes sense that the charity linked to the Ladiesrun has to do with women! The Pink Ribbon foundation finances scientific research and improves the care for patients that suffer from breast cancer.
