No Finish Line - the Runners

It's that time of year again when there are a lot of aching feet in Monaco.

'No Finish Line' is a charity 'run' in Monaco. It takes place over 8 days and the premise is simple - you pay 12 euros to enter and 10 euros for the hire of a microchip that is attached to your shoe. You grab a tee-shirt and then you walk, jog or run as often as you want over those 8 days. For every kilometre 1 euro is donated by the sponsors. The course is back and forth around one side of the port and the new digue (floating pontoon) and it's all in aid of charities for children. This year 6033 people took part, covered 168,992 kilometres and raised thousands of euros and doubtless got a lot fitter too!

What a terrific idea. Now I could this one. Well maybe a few weeks ago. Some heel problems now, but I'm on the mend. Got to get happy feet before my trip to Paris! :)
