LAHORE: To mark Pakistan’s Resolution Day, the District Administration Lahore has announced to organize Lahore Marathon 2019 on 23rd March 2019.
The marathon will cover a 10km route (starting from Gaddafi Stadium roundabout) and is aimed at promoting a softer image of the country, through engagement of citizens in healthy activities.
With the recent on-going tensions in the region, Lahore Marathon is an initiative of the District Administration Lahore aimed at delivering a message of peace on Pakistan’s Republic Day. The Marathon invites citizens of all ages and gender to #RunForPeace, symbolizing a communal petition of peace and harmony globally. The non-profit event will be title sponsored by the brand Oye Hoye and organized by Dreamweaver Productions.
“Our efforts intend to broadcast a communal message from Pakistanis to the entire global community that Pakistan is a peace-loving nation who speaks a language of harmony and tolerance while simultaneously rejects every form of violence,” said D.C. Lahore, Saleha Saeed.
“It’s an iconic decision to commence the march on Pakistan Day while simultaneously sending out a powerful message that a true Pakistani patriot is an advocate of peace. Our very own Pakistan-based brand Oye Hoye is truly proud to support the state in delivering this revolutionary narrative to bring out a positive message from Pakistan throughout the world,” said Director Marketing of United Snacks, Mian Shahzad Khalid.
