May 7th, this coming Sunday, is the day when all over the world, runners will take part in the unique event: it’s unique for several reasons, including the fact it starts at the same time around the globe, so some people run at dawn and others in the middle of the night. Then there’s the unusual format, as there is no set-distance with runners going as far as they can until they are overtaken by a Catcher Car. First held in 2014, last year alone, it brought in an incredible 6.6 million Euros for the Wings For Life foundation that funds life-changing spinal cord research, when over 130,000 runners completed a total distance of over one and a quarter million kilometres.
Several Toro Rosso personnel are taking part, starting either in Milan, Italy or Cambridge, UK. Also Carlos Sainz is taking part: he will run in Valencia! If you want to run for those who can’t, there are still places available at several venues around the world. To find out more, click here. You can even run “virtually” using the mobile app and of course, you can donate without taking part at all.
