COURSE: LIFE Runners will run/walk 1,103 legs (~5K each) for 4,089 miles over 40 days. On 5 Mar 2014, the East Coast Arm (1,997 miles) launches from the New York City Brooklyn Bridge, and the West Coast Arm (2,092 miles) launches from the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. The route goes by abortion facilities for prayer with 40 Days for Life groups. The East Coast and West Coast Arms will unite at the Sioux Falls (SD) Cathedral on Palm Sunday (13 Apr)…for a grand Pro-Life celebration! FLYER.
STRATEGY: Although only one person can sign up for each leg (to fill more miles), individuals are welcome to sign up for multiple legs, and groups are welcome to run together for multiple legs. Please encourage your Pro-Life friends and family to Sign Up soonest. Pro-Life organizations are welcome to adopt multiple legs of the course.
