Postal Staff will Compete in Vilnius Marathon

Oct 31, 2013

A large team of Lithuania Post will join participants of Danske Bank Vilnius Marathon to be held on Sunday, September 9. More than fifty postal employees have registered for various marathon distances.

“Tens of kilometres are daily covered by a large part of our employees; therefore, it is not surprising that many of them have decided to test themselves not only in walking, but also in running. The runners will defend the honour of Lithuania Post in all distances – full marathon, half marathon, quarter marathon, and even in the race of baby strollers,” Rasa Kruopaitė-Lalienė, Head of Lithuania Post‘s Marketing and Communication Department, said.

Dressed in bright yellow T-shirts, Lithuania Post‘s team will consist of postmen, customer service specialists, managers, heads of post offices, financial specialists, and others.

One of the distances, namely the team relay race, has been named after Lithuania Post. The team of four runners will run the distance of 10,549 each. According to R. Kruopaitė-Lalienė, Lithuania Post has prepared special surprises for the winners of this race.

Spectators of the event will also receive various presents from Lithuania Post. Both participants and spectators are invited to visit Lithuania Post‘s pavilion on Sunday and send their friends and relatives postcards made for this occasion. Lithuania Post‘s pavilion will be set up at Vilnius Main Post Office.

The Public Limited Company Lietuvos paštas runs the widest network of access points in Lithuania. Lithuania Post also provides logistic, financial intermediation, and electronic services.
