The first ever Run The World Challenge Team has already logged in 4,092 Miles since July 4
The Run the World Global Run Challenge started July 4th. Our goal is to login 24,901 miles (40,072k) within 30 days. We wanted this to be a Global event and it is. Our team of 200 has already run and logged in miles in 17 different countries. Our mission is to reach our goal but we also want to motivate, inspire others and celebrate running. A sport we love. Our team range in age from 11 to 81. Team member Abbey Cannon sums up our mission, "I think the Global Run Challenge is great because it shows that even though we are all at different levels and may run for different reasons, we in the running community from all over the globe can all come together to work for the same goal." Our team is amazing. Willie Korir from Kenya has already logged in 173 miles. 51-year-old JR Mintz has logged in 112 and 74-year-old Frank Bozanich has logged 112 miles as well. Grace Padillia has logged in the most miles for females with 72 miles. Becca Pizzi who ran a marathon on each continent in seven days earlier in the year has logged 60 miles. There are many amazing performances. You can follow all the action on our Run The World feed. We still have a long ways to go but we have almost already covered the distance between San Francisco and Iceland in eight days. This is more than just logging training and racing miles. It is a celebration of running. To help remember what we are doing we have an official shirt and a medal when we finish. Just click on the link and we will get out the shirt to you right away. If you didn't join us this time, we will be doing this same Global Challenge again starting August 29.
