Monaco runners “move for Peace”

By Staff Writer - October 4, 2016

peace1On 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.
