If you live in Australia here’s an opportunity for you to race Mark Webber and raise some money for good causes at the same time.
As a warm up for his gruelling Tasmania Challenge event, Webber is offering all levels of runners the chance to compete against him in a sponsored “Adventure Run” around the Hobart waterfront in Tasmania. The run will take place on December 4th in aid of the Mark Webber Foundation and Save the Tasmanian Devil foundation.
The Swisse Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge Adventure Run is being held three days prior to the main event; a tough five-day trek throughout Tasmania in which Mark broke his leg in 2008. The 6.5km “run” is primarily for amateur runners and walkers that would like a taster of the main trek, albeit in a more relaxed and fun environment.
As the main event may seem too much for many people, Mark and his fellow organisers decided to launch the accessible-for-all version of the competition. “This is a run designed for everyone and it’s a great opportunity for people to come to Tasmania, get involved and join in the fun,” said Webber in the events press release.
The Tasmanian Challenge began in 2003, however it was not put under Webber’s name until 2006. Both the five-day trek and the “adventure run” are charitable events aimed at supporting young Australians with life threatening illnesses as well as raising funds for environmental conservation.
