On Monday, October 3, some 40 running enthusiasts, including Philippe Verdier, the founder of No Finish Line, and IEFTA’s Marco Orsini laced up to for Peace and Sport’s first “I Move For Peace” run.
The 5 km collective jog was led by Monaco resident Paula Radcliffe, the world record holder for women’s marathon, with a time of 2:15:25 at the 2003 London Marathon.
The group left from the Tennis Club in Cap-d’Ail and did an aller-retour to Mala Plage, with stretching and drinks afterwards.
“I couldn’t pass up the chance to run with Paula,” one woman told Monaco Life. “And it’s for a good cause.”
Ms Radcliffe was a convivial host for what event organisers hope will be a regular fundraiser, involving other Champion for Peace ambassadors living in Monaco.
The “I Move For Peace Run” initiative has already raised €60,000 worldwide.
Thierry Neuville has snatched victory from Toyota’s defending champ Sebastien Ogier in the 2020 World Rally Championship season-opening Monte-Carlo Rally which ended Sunday.
New head coach Robert Moreno is under pressure after Saturday’s 1-3 loss and has conceded that his team needs to “work hard to learn about defence in particular”.
He is undoubtedly Monaco’s man of the moment, and now fans of Charles Leclerc will be given their very own grandstands for both the Monaco and France Formula One Grand Prix.
AS Monaco has stealthily made their way into the knockout stages of the Coupe de France after their decisive 3-1 win against Saint Pryvé-Saint Hilaire in Orleans on Monday night.
