Keen runners are urged to join an inspiring endurance runner as he embarks on a marathon around Luxembourg this Friday.
Nick Butter is almost one year into “Running the World 196”, an 18-month mission to run a marathon in every country in the world. His goal is to raise €250,000 for Prostate Cancer UK and raise awareness about the men’s illness.
“This trip combines my ultimate desire to explore the planet, meet amazing people and, in the process, help those suffering from cancer,” he writes on his website, adding: “I believe we all have a chance to leave the world a better place than we found it and this is my way of making a mark.”
You can join Butter when he sets out on his Luxembourg marathon on Friday, 16 November, at St George’s International School, 11 rue de Peupliers, Luxembourg-Hamm at 10:30am. The route will go via Pülvermühle, Grund, Clausen, along the Alzette to Hesperange, Kockelscheuer, Leudelange, Merl, the Pétrusse valley, the Gare district, city centre, Kirchberg, Pfaffenthal, finishing in the city centre. You can view Butter’s route here.
He will be joined by British Ambassador to Luxembourg John Marshall and a team of volunteers. The group will run at a pace of between 8 and 10 kilometres per hour.
