For the sixth year the FIP congress will include a 5km fun run. The FIP Fun Run is an excellent event promoting a healthy lifestyle, and an alternative networking opportunity for delegates. We ask runners to register their interest in advance, as places are limited. The 10 euro fee is a donation to the FIP Foundation, which helps the development of programmes to advance the pharmacy profession. All runners will receive a small memento.
