18th No Finish Line® in Monaco
Head for the stars!
Last year, the 13,297 runners and walkers covered more than the distance from the earth to the moon, a total of 392,516 km (243,577 miles) ... this year, there's a new challenge: head for the stars!
Mission 2017: cover 400,000 km (248,548 miles) in 8 days!
Number of passengers expected: 14,000!
Embarkation: Saturday 11 November from 2 p.m. to Sunday 19 November at 4 p.m.
Base and control centre: Fontvieille Big Top, Monaco
Trajectory: 1,400 m (3,280 ft) in the Fontvieille district
Fuel: The participants' only motivation - combining their sporting efforts with their enthusiasm for a single goal: helping sick and underprivileged children
Technical Assistance: 50 volunteers from Children & Future.
Since 1999, the year of the first No Finish Line®, the goals, both in terms of the number of participants and the distance to travel, have steadily increased, positioning this charity race as one of the most important Monegasque fundraising events.
Some figures: since 1999, 96,085 participants; 2,636,778 km (1,638,417 miles) travelled; 2,797,303 euros donated to projects for children.
→ The 1,400 m (3,280 ft) circuit in the Fontvieille district, created in 2015 and improved last year, remains unchanged.
→ The security measures introduced last year are exactly the same: barriers along the whole of the circuit; 3 entrances/exits with checks and bag searches ("Big Top," "Crèche," and "Rose Garden").
→ Participation/registration: 24h/24h on the circuit at the Fontvieille Big Top,
→ Refueling: on the circuit, open all the time.
→ Communication: New! A studio will be set up with live reports and interviews, 3 times a day on FaceBook.
Reasons for its success:
No Finish Line® is a major charity race - a sporting event whose exponential success is due to 3 factors: taking part is simple and accessible to all: run or walk around a 1,400 m (3,280 ft) circuit, open 24 hours a day for 8 days, as many times as you wish and as far as you like; charitable objectives, with around 20 projects supported each year and transparent communication on how the money raised is used - exemplary rigor, which reflects Children & Future's ongoing commitment to ensuring the greatest pleasure of all and seeing the smiles of the children the association supports!
Embarkment in Fontvieille for a new challenge from 11 to 19 November 2017!
