Some Rimi employees take part in different tracks of the marathon each year, for some of them it was the first time to run in with the like-minded and colleagues.
"At first we were worried because it was the first running event for us. However, I am glad that everyone has successfully ran the chosen distance in a rather short time. It is difficult to express my emotions: what a great Rimi team, what a great mood and atmosphere. This is a good motivation to attend marathon next year. I hope that next year we will need a bus to bring all jogging lovers" - said Sigitas, who works in one of the Rimi Lietuva stores in Panevėžys.
