Breakbulk BUSINESSrun

Breakbulk Americas 2022 BUSINESSrun

Dear Runners and Business Friends,

Together with our sponsor UHL and media partner ITJ International Transport Journal, we invite you to participate at the: 51ST BUSINESSRUN BREAKBULK AMERICAS IN HOUSTON. This event is a run, not a race. Everybody is welcome.

After a warm up exercise conducted by our professional running coach, we will run the Buffalo Bayou Trail in a loop of approximately 4 km and 8 km. There will be a faster group for more ambitious runners, and a slower group for newcomers.

Meet and start time:
The run starts on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 a.m. Please meet at 7:15 a.m. for warm-up and for greeting your co-runners

The meeting and ending point is in front of the George Brown Convention Center, Breakbulk America Entrance (across from the Marriott, underneath the Breakbulk logo, in front of the building) where refreshments will be offered at the end of the run. There will be ample opportunity for networking with sponsors and co-runners then.

Participation Fee: The participation fee is $50.00 which is donated entirely to the local charity St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude conducts research on childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases and offers care and treatments to families in need. Add the run when you register or if you have already registered, you may log back in and add the run. Registration Resource Center >

This run will be opened by Peter Wurschy from Nord-Sud Shipping. Peter is a vetted maritime professional with over 46 years of experience in shipping services with carriers, ship agencies, terminal operators, liner services and an International Oil Company and to many of us both a hero and a dear friend! Peter was formerly a lieutenant commander in the US Navy but is now living in Portugal where he keeps active with a daily 5 km walk along the Ericeira promenade. Peter is a BUSINESSrun veteran & protagonist from the early hour, and will help us launch the first run back in the USA after the pandemic hiatus.

Subject to material availability, our running shirts are made out of OceanWaste plastics.

We look forward to seeing you!
