One Run For Boston

7 - 30 June 2013
Los Angeles to Boston

Boston City Liaison, Social Media Development and Runner

A 3300 mile non-stop running relay from Los Angeles to Boston. Hundreds of runners from across the USA will keep the relay going non-stop around the clock through fourteen different states and four separate time zones, passing a specially designed baton between them. Supporters will be able to follow their progress online thanks to a GPS tracking device fitted to the baton which will update its location every 15 minutes.

The event is being organized thousands of miles away by a trio of running enthusiasts from the UK with support from regional ambassadors who want to show their support for Boston following the tragic events of April 15. Raising funds for The One Fund, the relay starts from Venice Beach, LA, at 10am on Friday 7 June and is scheduled to reach Boston just over three weeks later at 8pm on Sunday 30 June.

I'll be running stage 292 from the World Trade Center to Central Park as well as the final stage from Newton to Boston.
