The Allianz World Run, this time in its 6th edition, took place throughout both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, thus motivating participants to give their best, embracing the true Olympic spirit. Held over 90 days, the program saw a total of 12,418 participants from 69 teams. Lanka contributed with 975 participants running 201,423 KMs, an average distance of 207 KMs per participant for a total of 118,509 minutes, a feat that placed the island nation second in terms of participants and 3rd in terms of contribution of KMs

Speaking after the event, Allianz Insurance Lanka Limited Chief Executive Officer Gany Subramaniam said, “We are very proud to maintain our standing at the Allianz World Run this year, which is testament to the resilience and spirit of our Sri Lankan people to never back down and to keep fighting for the sake of our fellow man. I humbly hope this serves as an inspiration to everyone, across the globe, that with courage and determination there is no obstacle humanity cannot defeat.”

This year’s Run was held under the theme ‘Moving with Purpose’ and provided humanitarian aid for three countries namely, Colombia where the flow of refugees from Venezuela created an additional challenge for COVID-19 relief efforts across the country; Lebanon, which is witnessing high numbers of COVID-19 inflexions, in addition to an economic crisis and civil unrest and the Philippines, which is seeking to build and maintain isolation facilities to cater to suspected and confirmed COVID-19 cases.
