Ravenna hosts Global Ports Holding's 2017 run

Article-Ravenna hosts Global Ports Holding's 2017 run

Over 8,000 participants took part in GPH's annual run in Ravenna
Global Ports Holding held its annual Global Run event on Sunday in Ravenna, Italy and home to Ravenna Cruise Port, which is operated by GPH.

The running event brought together over 8,000 participants from 43 different nationalities.

They passed several UNESCO heritage sites along the course including the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, the Church of San Vitale and the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe.

Among the new features of the 2017 Global Run was the Global Ports Intermediate Goal. This goal was at the 3.9 km mark, which overlooks Ravenna's Dockside and is known for the Moro of Venice, the boat symbol of the port.

Prizes were given to the man and woman to record the fastest time at that point.

‘This year’s Global Run was a great success, taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Ravenna. We are committed to helping promote integration and tolerance across different cultures and the Global Run plays a small role in achieving that. Congratulations to everyone who took part,’ commented Emre Sayın, ceo of Global Ports Holding.
