What does a two time Boston Marathon winner and the Boston Marathon Race Director have in common? They are both doing the Run The World Challenge again
Geoff Smith won the Boston Marathon twice. He was leading the 1983 New York City Marathon at 26 miles until Rod Dixon caught him and Geoff finished just seconds behind. After taking a break from running due to some injuries, Geoff has now run every day recently passing 700. While doing the first Run The World Challenge he nearly doubled his regular mileage. That team logged in 24,901 miles in 36 days 23 Hours 13 Minutes. That’s enough miles to circle the globe. “We are putting together our second team now and we hope to finish in 30 days,” Bob Anderson Run The World team Caption says. Miles on the first team were run in 30 countries. Youngest on the team was age 11 and the oldest was 82. Team members logged in as many as 798 miles to as few as 3. “I increased my average weekly miles from 20 to 35,” says 70-year-old Bob Anderson. “The Run The World Challenge just gives more purpose to run a few more miles everyday,” he says. There are a few more spots available. You can continue with your regular routine and just take another minute or so to log in your miles on your My Best Runs account. “I am looking forward to doing this challenge again,” says Geoff Smith. Runners of all ages and abilities and throughout the world have already signed up. How about you?
