Beirut Marathon 2017




For the second year in a row, the University had a strong presence through a 
Cheering Station, next to Banque du Liban – Hamra, where music club bands 
(Soundz Good and Looney Tunes) performed and interacted with the runners




As part of the “Donate Your Running Shoes” initiative, we collected running shoes 
from all campuses in addition to College Notre Dame du Balamand school 
and Lady of Balamand High School to be donated to unprivileged kids




Under the title of UOB CARES and as part of Beirut Marathon’s “Adopt a Group”
 initiative, the University of Balamand adopted a First Step Together Association (FISTA) 
team to participate




Maria Kiwan, Nour Nassour, and Karim Ramadan (Balamand students) have been training with 
Coach Dann Crisan over the past year. Maria Kiwan ranked first in her age category 
completing the 42K race in 3.35.24 (breaking her last year record) 
while Nour Nassour ranked third with a timing of 3.52.24.




43 students, from all campuses, ran for several NGOs
