After nearly 13,500 runners raced more than the distance to the moon during the 2016 No Finish Line charity run in Monaco, organisers are reaching for the stars in this year’s event. From Saturday 11th to Sunday 19th November, an estimated 14,000 participants will be hoping to break the 400,000-kilometre barrier as they raise funds for different associations in aid of sick and disadvantaged children.
Leaving for the start line at the Chapiteau de Fontvielle in the west of the principality, runners will embark on a 1.4-kilometre course around Monaco. The course is to be open around the clock, allowing entrants to complete as many laps as they like and at any speed. For each kilometre run, the Children & Future association will donate – thanks to support from numerous high-profile donators and registration fees (12€ for adults and 6€ for under 10s) – one euro to a range of charities and projects.
Since 1999, the No Finish Line event has raised 2,797,303€ and has seen nearly 100,000 participants run for the 2.5 million kilometres. Registrations can be made for individuals and groups online.
