14, 2019) – The second Light The Night Run vertical race at The Parisian Macao’s half-scale Eiffel Tower took place on April 13, to raise funds for local charities and the event also provided a fun weekend for locals and visitors to Macao.


Now a fixture on the Macao sporting calendar, the Light The Night Run challenges professional athletes and fitness fans to race up 750 steps to the tower’s 37th floor observation deck finish line.


All registration fees for the event, which is part of a family fun and fitness weekend incorporating sport, wellness and health education, will be donated to Macau IC2 Association to sponsor its upcoming Art for Community event, and to Caritas Macau to allow its users with restricted mobility gain free access to its stair climber service. The Parisian Macao has again partnered with the General Association of Athletics of Macau whose mission is to develop local sports and culture and raise the health of Macao citizens.


In the Tower Fun Run Group,
Lok Chong Leng came in a time of 5 minutes 46 seconds to be crowned male champion while Lam Cho Teng put in 7 minutes 43 seconds to take the female title.


Over the weekend The Parisian Macao also organised Light the Night Run Wellness Fun Festival, a series of family events for everyone to enjoy, with wellness activities including yoga, meditation and workout sessions, a chill out zone with a kids’ playground, and entertainment along with wellness marketplace, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Eiffel Tower.  Popular Hong Kong group MIRROR also performed at the event.


Participating at the event were Ruth Boston, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Brand Management, Sands China Ltd.,
Chan Pou Shin, Vice President of the General Association of Athletics of Macau and Hong Kong actor Vincent Wong.


Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Ruth Boston said, “Light The Night Run offers participants an opportunity to enjoy some physical activities while at the same time help raise funds for some very worthy local charities, plus we wanted to include a range of fun healthy events that the whole family could enjoy throughout the day, all set against the backdrop of the magnificent The Parisian Macao.


“We are again grateful to the organisations, sponsors and participants who have made it possible. We hope it will inspire people here in Macao to adopt healthier lifestyles.”
