Run The World Global Run Challenge is a 24,901 Mile Event circling the world
Run The World Global Run Challenge is a special running event celebrating running and inspiring people. Our group will login enough miles to circle the world. We are starting July 4, 2018 and will finish once we have logged in 24,901 miles (40,074 kilometers). We are doing this Run The World Global Run Challenge to show the world that running is important to us no matter where we live in the world. We are Runners and we are proud of it. We run regularly, many of us daily, and we mostly do it for ourselves because it makes us a better person. Some of us can only run a mile or so at this point while others can easily handle a marathon and beyond. Running is magical. It helps keep things in perspective. Running helps smooth out the bumps. Running relieves stress and gives us fitness making our lives better. Running is much more than putting one foot in front of the other. Many of us run races to gauge our fitness level and to be around other people who love running as much as we do. I am Bob Anderson and I am a lifetime runner. I started running February 19, 1962 and four years later started Runner's World magazine and published it for 18 years. We had 2.5 million monthly readers by 1985. I am starting the Run The World Global Run Challenge to help inspire us. I love to have more reasons to log in miles. This is pure running. I hope you will join us. Just log in your training or racing miles. We have made it easy to log miles. Just set up an account on My Best Runs and log there starting July 4. There is no cost to be part of our challenge. People can join at any time along the way and log in miles. Runners can sign up now and give an estimate on how many weekly miles they will post.
