I'm now registered for my 3rd Wings for Life run which is on May 6th. Those who were on that previous site we don't mention may recall my attempt to describe this unique event last year (and my race summary) but if not here's a link (Wing For Life). Basically at the same time around the world everyone starts running and tries to stay ahead of the "catcher cars". The cars start a half hour later, moving at the same time & pace around the world. Once the cars pass you, your race is finished. Essentially the finish line catches you! Here in Melbourne we start at 9pm and follow a motorway so we end up looking like this:
So here's my challenge (and let me preface by saying I have no affiliation with the organizers or the charity) you can take on this little Aussie battler because you can do this race anywhere in the world. For example whilst the official race sites in the US are limited you can do your own race anywhere you like using their Apple/Android app. Plus you'll also be racing against hundreds of thousands across the globe at the same time. The other cool thing I like about this race (apart from being a good cause) is the sponsor(s) put up all the cost so 100% of any entry/fundraising goes to the charity (spinal cord research). If not you can always watch the live webcast & be amazed at how far some of these freak runners get.
