NIDA HOSTS INTERNATIONAL EUROPEAN COOPERATION RUN

2014-09-05
The Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI CBC Programme 2007-2013 invites everybody to make five kilometres of European cooperation in the traditional Nida semi-marathon. This is an excellent opportunity to overcome oneself, learn about the joint projects of three countries and receive gifts.


For the third time the European Cooperation Day is celebrated across Europe on 21 of September and surrounding days, to dignify the achievements of more than 20 years of territorial cooperation. During entire September tens of events take place from Finland to Cyprus, presenting the cross-border cooperation programmes, which give the opportunity for organisations coming from neighbouring countries to implement joint projects. This year Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI CBC Programme is going to celebrate this day in a sport way during semi-marathon in Nida (Lithuania), which is held for the 15th time this year.

60 projects are implemented under the Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013 in the fields of ecology, entrepreneurship, tourism, culture, education and healthcare. More than 124 million EUR of the co-financing of the European Union has been allocated to these projects.

On the 27th of September people coming to Nida will be able to know more common Lithuanian, Polish and Russian achievements in promotion of healthy lifestyle and creation of sports opportunities to the inhabitants of the border regions. A brand new universal sports arena in Palanga will be presented, as well as the reconstructed stadiums in Jurbarkas and Šilalė and the sports field in Pagėgiai. There will be a possibility to learn about common sports trainings, competitions and festivals organised by the Lithuanians, Poles and Russians. The supporters of the Nida semi-marathon runners will be able to take part in the sport-games, while their relatives and friends will compete in the track.

The first 5,4 kilometre-long lap of the Nida semi-marathon is named the European Cooperation Run. The inhabitants of Lithuania and the neighbouring countries are invited to challenge the others and themselves and become parts of the European Cooperation Day celebrated all over Europe.

Every participant of the European Cooperation Run will receive a runner set and the commemorative gifts of the Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013.
