Jakarta, 12 December 2020 --- Not being crushed by the Covid-19 Pandemic, PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk (BNI) continues its support for marathon running competitions. This time, BNI, the Solidarity Forever Foundation and Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) are collaborating in realizing BNI-ITB Virtual Ultra Marathon 2020, which was participated by more than 5,000 runners.
The uniqueness of this year's competition with the theme Run of the Century is that participants can determine their own route with the Strava application. BNI-ITB Virtual Ultra Marathon also aims to commemorate ITB's 100th anniversary, campaign for a healthy lifestyle through running sports, and strengthen solidarity with ITB alumni.
In Jakarta, on Saturday (12 December 2020), the Director of Institutional Relation of BNI, Sis Apik Wijayanto said, considering that Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet, the 2020 marathon will be held virtually. This is in anticipation of the limitations of mass gathering.
"Thanks to the existing technological capabilities, the participants can run from anywhere within the specified time span. The event which consists of 3 categories is carried out by relay," said Sis Apik.
The first was carried out by 2 relay runners, 4 relay runners, and 10 relay runners, which was done by combining the running distances of the participants until they were collected into 100 km of mileage.
The 10K category is specifically provided for ITB alumni participants. Meanwhile, two other categories are open for public, namely relay 2 and relay 4.
"The target achievement is based on BNI-ITB Virtual Ultra Marathon participants’ great interest. They enjoy this event not only as a nostalgic moment, but also to be healthy through sports activities," said Sis Apik.
