The Nation Funathlon is a wholesome, exciting and fun-filled walk and run that encourages people of all ages to engage in healthy activity. The annual 5K event, which embraces professional athletes as well as casual walkers and runners, has been a popular item on Barbados’ activity calendar for over 30 years. Individuals, families, fitness enthusiasts and social groups take part in the annual charity event, which is known for its relaxing and family-oriented atmosphere.
The 2020 edition, Barbados for the third consecutive year, will be held on November 21 and 22 under the theme “An Active Nation for Better Health”. This year’s event will benefit the Barbados Diabetes Foundation and the Diabetes Association of Barbados for the second year and aid in their mission of supporting individuals living with the chronic disease.
This year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in keeping with local and international safety guidelines, the Nation Funathlon goes virtual. Walk, run or ride the 5K distance as an individual or with a team.
