The initiative aims to spread the spirit of togetherness and joy despite lockdowns and movement restrictions. Run for Maldives is all about physical distancing whilst maintaining important social relationships with your families, friends, and loved ones.

Run for Maldives is about empowering and honoring the great efforts by our frontline workers in this difficult time with covid-19. We have partnered with Maldivian Red Crescent and Maldivian Thalassemia Society to assist them in their effort in the battle against covid-19. A percentage of the funds generated from the event will go towards supporting these efforts. We encourage the public to participate and join in this together with us for a fun time and a good cause.

The Free stays are provided by the event host’s partner resorts and hotels.
