Monza Power Run 2023: there’s a big comeback with booming registrations
Monza Power Run 2023 at the starting tape
The countdown has begun toward the ninth edition of the Monza Power Run, which returned last year after the painful abandonment of the 2020 and 2021 editions and will be more spectacular than ever in 2023.
The race, which will be staged on July 22 and 23 between Villasanta and Monza Park, will feature a major change from 2022: the return of water, which will be used to make some of the obstacles even more exciting.
MPR 2023 was presented to the press at the Town Hall in Villasanta: among others were the mayor of the Brianza town, Luca Ornago, Roberto Brandazzi, the president of the Lele Forever ONLUS association, accompanied by his wife Patrizia, and Lorenzo Galli, who heads the organization of the two-day event.
“Once again this year to run the machine will be 250 volunteers, some of whom have already begun the work of producing the obstacles months ago,” Galli pointed out. “There has been a boom in registrations, already 1,800 have given us confidence, but there is still room.
The Monza Power Run is, as many already know, a non-competitive obstacle race whose proceeds will be totally donated to support the fight against leukemia in collaboration with the San Gerardo Hospital in Monza.
“In all these years of activity we have raised almost 2 million euros, entirely reinvested in this battle. The Monza Power Run is the highlight, we hope to see many participants in masks, all the more so because the water is back,” Brandazzi added.
“It is very nice that we are starting and arriving in Villasanta. But even nicer is what the Lele Forever Association, one of the prides of our town, is managing to do,” Ornago finally noted.
