Syndicate of Owners of Restaurants, Cafés, Nightclubs and Pastries in Lebanon joins forces with the Beirut Marathon Association

The Beirut Marathon, an event that gathers together local and international amateur runners and athletes, has partnered with the Syndicate of Owners of Restaurants, Cafés, Night-Clubs and Pastries in Lebanon in order to raise awareness on the importance of sports and promote jogging.

The partnership aims to engage syndicate members and encourage participation in the races. Furthermore, it grants the association access to the union’s facilities, upon availability and pre-approval, to conduct workshops, press conferences and award ceremonies. In return, the Beirut Marathon Association will deduct 25 percent from the marathon registration fees of syndicate members, provided that they donate the amount to charity.

In an exclusive statement, Tony Ramy, president of the Syndicate of Owners of Restaurants, Cafés, Night-Clubs and Pastries in Lebanon, said: “I speak on behalf of the syndicate when I say that we are excited to be renewing our collaboration with Beirut Marathon Association, but this time it’s taking a new turn. The restaurant sector will be participating in the race, as it always seeks to endorse initiatives that create joy and good vibes in our country.  Being part of the tourism sector, we aim to bring people together and revitalize our city, which is going through some very tough challenges. You could say that the sector is running to breathe life back into the city’s streets, spread positive energy and restore the country to its former glory: a hub of joy, music, life and success. ”
