After only five days, this year’s No Finish Line has already covered 255,661 km – 24,000 km more compared to last year – by 10,986 walkers or runners, including a Princely participant on Wednesday evening.

As he does every year according to his schedule, Prince Albert did a few laps of the 1.4 km circuit in Fontvieille alongside NFL founder Philippe Verdier.

The 18th edition of NFL’s “Heading to the Stars” is hoping to reach the 400,000-km mark. Every kilometre completed equals €1 donated to charity on behalf of the sponsors, like Barclays and JB Pastor & Fils Monaco, to help sick and disadvantaged children through the association Children & Future.

There are 13,534 registered NFLers this year, 893 more people than in 2016, and fifty volunteers.

NFL winds up at 4 pm on National Day, November 19.
