FENC Classic Marathon in the Teens
After being postponed for two years due to the COVID-10 pandemic, the FENC Classic Marathon returned on October 29, 2022 at Hsinpu Chemical Fiber Plant. This time, the organizer offered the 6K, 9K, 22K and 42K runs, drawing nearly 4,000 runners to the race. Despite strong gusts on the day of the event, the runners persevered and finished the race amid harsh conditions, a true embodiment of bravery and positivity.
Aside from promoting health through the marathon, FENC engaged in fundraising for the local elders with Huashan Social Welfare Foundation in Hsinpu. The two entities held a fair offering local produce and Hakka cuisine to the runners and visitors. While providing nutritious food choices to the runners, it was a great marketing opportunity for the local food.
FENC’s running jerseys have always been a hit among runners. The 2022 collection focuses on the sustainable, odorless and drying elements. The jersey keeps the runners’ skin dry by using fibers with anti-odor property and high wickability, creating a refreshing marathon experience. The jerseys are made of the sustainable fabric-to-fabric (F2F) recycled polyester. While promoting health and a sense of community among FENC employees and the local residents, the marathon also served as a medium for promoting the local cuisine and scenic landscape that drives community development and prosperity.
