Occasional walkers and seasoned runners welcome!
It was H.R.H. Princess Alexandra de Hanover who gave the official kick off for the for the 2016 edition of the No Finish Line®, reuniting 13,297 participants who run or walked the distance from the Earth to the Moon covering 392,516 Km, a mission well accomplished!
For its 18th edition the NFL proposes a new challenge: to reach the stars by completing 400,000 Km in 8 days! An expected number of 14,000 participants will start their solidarity journey on Saturday, November 11 from 14:00, until Sunday November 19 at 16:00. Since its inception in 1999, over 96,085 occasional walkers or seasoned runners have covered 2,636,778 Km merging their sportive efforts with their generosity by raising 2,797,303 Euros benefiting projects aiding underprivileged or suffering children.
The association Children & Future, in collaboration with the Monegasque authorities, invite you to join them again in the circuit of Fontvieille with a route measuring 1400m meandering around the marquee, the Rosary Princess Grace and the Ligures/Guelfes and Papalins avenues. This attractive track reinforces the motivation of participants who will try to reach the new ambitious goal, with the assistance of 50 volunteers from Children & Future. Participants will also profit from the festive village under the marquee, where they will enjoy all sort of animations while discovering the stands of loyal partners.
This year again, there is a special emphasis on interactive communication on the social networks. A specialized team will be dedicated 24h/24h to update the race, feeding the networks in a creative and original way, for everybody to follow the No Finish Line in real time.
The No Finish Line still remains a grand charity race, a sportive feast where success is the result of three factors: a simple principle of participation, accessible to all, running or walking on a circuit of 1400 m, open 24h/24h during 8 days, as many times as anyone desires and as many kilometers as they wish; with a noble charitable objective and transparent communication over the funds raised. Thanks to the registrations, donors and sponsors, Children & Future has been giving Euro 1 for each kilometer covered, to support projects in favor of children in need.
