The 5.30 is a 5K run/walk that takes place in the town centre at 5.30am, before a regular business day. Our 5.30 run/walk is based on the promotion of an active lifestyle supported by healthy food and a touch of art. The idea is that this will increase the wellness of the people in the town where they live and work, whilst delivering a sustainable event with zero environmental impact.

According to the creators, 5.30 is not only a sport event but also a project based on the promotion of a positive lifestyle, centered around daily physical activity and healthy eating.
