Run For Tomorrow

13 Feb

I have been asked for more info on what I’ve been invited to be part of!
All this info is from the website. I’m pretty stoked to be one of the 10 runners.
“r4t is a continuous relay run around the world by a 10-person team of experienced distance runners. The 10 runners will complete the 26.2 mile distance and then give the scroll (baton) to the next runner, who runs the next 26.2 miles, and passes the scroll to the next core runner and so on. The scroll never stops moving. Each day, the team will cover approximately 120 miles as the runners continuously pass the ‘Commitment Scroll’ to one another (through night and day).
For all the info have a look at

“The R4T ‘Big Run’ is scheduled to begin in April 2014, in Ottawa, Canada, and returns to Ottawa several months later. The runners will run through southern Ontario, Canada and the United States. We head to Toronto from Ottawa, and move our way down to the US border at Windsor. We enter the United States via Detroit before heading to Los Angeles via Chicago, Kansas and Denver. From there we head up to Vancouver via San Francisco, Portland and Seattle, and then we head to NZ and Australia and Southeast Asia. We run through India and fly over to run through South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. We then fly up to southern Europe and run through numerous European countries before heading into the United Kingdom. We return to the US via New York, and head to Boston and Montreal before returning to Ottawa, 32 countries and 360 million people later, as well as having a new Guinness World Record for a relay run!!!

      Is that fair that there are two people with the surname Major from the UK? ;)
      I’ll be joining you guys on the 16th and will be flying from #1 daughter’s wedding to where the first 5 runners will be… I wonder if Malcolm will allow a party every now and then? so looking forward to meeting you!!
