Swieqi 5k Fun Run 2016

Overseas RUFC take part in the Swieqi 5K Fun Run 2016

On Thursday the 8th of September, the Swieqi Overseas Rugby Club participated to the 5k Fun Run in Swieqi, an event happening around the annual Swieqi Festa.

Around 20 members of the club found the courage to wake up early on a bank holiday to run the race, with a very colourful mix between male players, female players, youth, committee rep and supporters.

Everyone involved did very well, in a very nice and happy atmosphere, where the keywords were mainly to have fun, to support our community in any way we can, and to meet with our friends from the different sports clubs involved in Swieqi.

Among the key moments, we can speak about the nice head to head race between 2 of our players who finished in the first places, about an elegant jump from one of our ladies who thought she was a hurdler above a photographer who decided it was a good idea to lie on the race track, or even about a few members of the team joining the public Zumba class after the race.

That brilliant morning finished with a few beverages in the Happy Dayz bar, a very nice and enjoyable place which we learnt to love thanks to their very warm welcoming a few weeks ago during our Get Together day.

Once again, a great event organised by the Swieqi town, and another enjoyable day with our Rugby community.

Bring on next year!!
