By 24th October 2016News

This is what happens when Hassan Mourhit (former Belgian champion 1.500m indoor, former world record holder 2 miles indoor for juniors) and Mohammed Mourhit (two-time world champion cross country, former European record holder in the 3,000, 5,000 and 10,000m) are part of your team: you find yourself sponsoring and co-organising a prestigious street run following COP 22, the climate conference of the United Nations held in Marrakech, Morocco this year.

Leading up to the COP 22, EnergyVision together with the University of Fez, organised a large sports festival, including a football tournament and streetrun. It was an overwhelming succes, free entry for athletes, the presence of different prominent people of both the university and the government in the stands, large crowds of spectators and students, en great feedback on Moroccan television and in the newspapers.

Athletics and Energyvision, they remain close. In Morocco, half of our team are former athletes. In China , half of our team went down to Beijing to watch the athletics world championships. Every year EnergyVision employees and customers inBelgium spend a great evening at the Memorial Van Damme. And this time we co-organised a street run in Fez: without a doubt the beginning of a new annual tradition.
