Outdoor Session no2: Rat Race 2017 - White-Collars Charity Run on Friday, June 2nd.

Will you join our CEO this year? Yes? Sign up today! 

NECC will compete under Team Norway name :)

The aim of Rat Race is to bring the “office rats” out into the fresh air and through humour and fun promote charity and an active lifestyle. This year's donations will go to support the Youth in Risk program.

Rat Race started first in New York as an entertaining, sportive charity run for, so-to-say, white-collars. In Tallinn, the route is filled with amusing obstacles and takes the participants right through the Old Town.

This year, the event takes place on June 2, 2017 and is accompanied with an exciting entertainment program on the official stage. There is also a wide range of awards up for winning for all the participants provided by the partners of Rat Race to make the event even more thrilling.

Rat Race Tallinn is organized by JCI Tallinn. JCI unites active people, who show initiative, are motivated and aim high. JCI is a place to learn, experience, and achieve both your personal and professional goals.


A team consists up to 5 members
Recommended: a costume – it could be anything, allow your team to shine amongst the others. Wear comfortable footwear.
The route must be finished in half an hour maximum.
Participants are responsible for their state of health during the event.
Obligatory: optimistic and enthusiastic state of mind!

If you are not up for running, you are welcome to cheer our "champion athletes" beside the track or on the finish line! :)
