Run The World
1st – 30th September
Stage One – Europe
Stage One begins on the start line of the original Leicester Marathon in Victoria Park, Leicester, and takes us on a wide-ranging tour of Europe. Along the way we’ll visit many of the continents’ capital cities and the most striking landmarks that define them.
Looping through almost every single European country, Stage One covers 22,256 km (13,829 miles) as it winds through both the Pyrenees and the Alps before heading north through Scandinavia. As we reach Russia we turn back southwards down through Eastern Europe with the stage eventually coming to an end at the impressive Anitkabir Mausoleum in Ankara.
Our team tracking map (see below) will be updated regularly so that you can see just how far the ‘Run The World’ team has made it around the route at any given time. As we progress, the landmarks below will light up to mark our achievements as we go. Please note that activity uploads are not instantaneous. Your personal total should update relatively quickly, but the team total (and the live progress map) will only refresh every few hours.
Stage Two picks up back in Ankara before heading out for a tour of Africa!
