Liises run in Ruhnu

For EV100 we want to organize something new and exciting for both our home island and its visitors. Liises run aims to bring a piece of Estonia determination, joy and energy.

Family event

Liises run in Ruhnu is a 3 day event in the middle of the Gulf of Riga. Although we are far from the mainland we are still a part of Estonia and thus, want to celebrate Estonia's 100th birthday together with everybody else. The event takes places before the main tourism season which means we are not going to overpopulate the island for the weekend. Instead, we are going to give the visitors a new and exciting way to get to know this tiny piece of our homeland.  

To run on Saturday, You need to come to Ruhnu on Friday and leave on Sunday. That is why we have organized an exciting weekend program. The run itself takes place on the 2nd of June on distances 42,2, 21.1 and 10.9 kilometers. The younger ones have the opportunity to participate in the kids run. Before and after the marathon we will introduce Ruhnus history and nowadays. You are also welcome to visit the museum, the churches, the lighthouse, the beach and the forest. To make our celebration looking a bit more like a real party we have invited the loved Estonian band Justament to celebrate with us. 

What is more, together with all the participants we are going to make a gift for Ruhnu, an thus, also for the entire Estonia. As a fun and collective activity we are going to plant a fruit garden for the newly renowated Ruhnu school building.

NB! The number of participants is limited
