A a bit of background,
Run the World is an extraordinary challenge that has been created by Dan, a British business man and sports enthusiast who has undertaken to run 10km in every country in the world - a total of 206 countries - by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. - This is his website -
Dan is doing the challenge to promote the physical and mental health benefits of sport and physical activity all over the world, and to raise money for cancer research following the recent death of his mother from cancer.
Organizing runs is from abroad in quite difficult. So, Dan and his team make contact with other runners, running clubs and Hash House Harriers where ever they can.
HagueHash will dedicate its run 2069 to Dan's 176
After this - only 29 to go !
It will be a red dress run - Yeah !
- You will get the unique opportunity to join this run and voluntarily contribute financial wize as well.
- Wearing heels is not compulsory. For the boys that feel a bit uncomfortable wearing a dress, wear something very very red at least. It is a 10km run but yes, there will be shortcuts for the less athletic types amongst us.
