Run The World Challenge 2! Participants must log their first mile before they are on the team, limited to 175.
"I think the Run The World Challenge is really cool because I get to connect with people who are doing the same thing for different reasons, and people from around the world,” say Henry Ward who is doing the challenge for the second time. The Run The World Global Run Challenge ('challenge') is all about running. It is a celebration of running. The challenge is a good motivator and many have said they have run more miles (k's) because of the challenge. The challenge inspires others to start or re-start their running. The challenge is about setting a goal and completing it. “Our first team started on July 4 and 36 days 23 hours 13 minutes later our team of 175 (which is now the max size of a team) finished running and logging 24,901 miles (40,074K),” says team Caption, 70-year-old Bob Anderson who logged 189 miles. “Our team ran miles in 30 different countries. The youngest on our team was 11 and the oldest 82 and I am proud of all of them.” Participants logged in as many as 797.37 miles down to 2.49 miles. Run The World Challenge 2 starts Wednesday August 29. You can sign up at any time but once 175 people log at least a mile, our team is full. “Signing up is just the first step of the process,” says Bob Anderson. “You are not on the team until you log your first mile.” For this challenge, we will be doing a celebration lap in Pacific Grove on September 30 at the Pacific Grove 10k and Double Road Race event. “We encourage everyone to join us and come run one of our races too,” says Bob. Get signed up and logged your first mile starting Wednesday August 29 to make the team. The maximum size team is 175. “We are running and logging enough miles to circle the globe,” says Michael Wardian who is doing the challenge for the second time. That is 24,901 miles. All ages and abilities are invited. Every mile count. (Photo) Team members Bob Anderson, Lisa Wall and Owen Wall.
