A fun-run and walk to raise money for a local Maastricht charity is being organised by Access International and APEX on the final morning of the exhibition.

The 6 km run will be held at 7.00 am on Friday 16 September and starts at the Forum square next to the NH Hotel at the MECC exhibition centre.

You don't need to be mega-fit to participate. The route is a double 3 km loop, so those who prefer can walk, jog or stagger a single 3km circuit.

Funds raised will be given to Ronald McDonald House, a worldwide charity that provides accommodation to the families of children being treated for serious illnesses.

The run has already been generously supported by Riwal, Genie, JLG, IPAF, APEX, MECC, Maison van den Boer and the KHL Group.

The charity has a facility in Maastricht linked to the city's university hospital (azM), which is located next to the MECC centre. Funds will be directed to the charity's house in Maastricht.

All those attending the exhibition - exhibitor staff and visitors to the show - are invited to run. There will be a €20 donation to enter and companies or individuals can support the event for €500. (Each supporting company can enter three runners without paying the extra €20 per participant). All funds will be donated to the charity.

If you would like to join their number please contact Wil Holloway on

"The run should be good fun, but is also an opportunity for us to support a charity that is local to the APEX exhibition", said Murray Pollok, managing editor of Access International. "So the message is, when you come to Maastricht in September, bring your running shoes."

For more information, and to sign up as a supporting company, please contact Wil Holloway (, Maria Hadlow ( or Murray Pollok (

Pre-registration to run isn't required, but if you are planning to turn up then please try to let us know so that we have a good idea of the numbers. Just drop in on the KLH stand 1010 at the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you there.
