In November 2019, 8 runners will come together to each take on 250km over 6 days, climbing the equivalent of 1.5 times the height of EVEREST, in the tropical islands of The Azores. This will push the limits of human endurance to fight modern slavery. Run For Love 3 is organised by TRIBE and raising money for the fantastic charity TRIBE Freedom Foundation fighting modern slavery.
The average distance each runner is attempting is more than a marathon a day and with vertical ascent of more than 1.5 times the height of Everest! This is no easy challenge. The toughest day is Day 4, which sees the team complete an 80km overnight stage, leaving at 3am with glow sticks and torches to climb to the highest point of the island.
They will be camping in the wild, without showers and cooking their freeze dry food.
The team have not done anything this far on a multi-stage run, but are keen to take on The Challenge to raise money for this good Cause.
The TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a registered charity established by the TRIBE community to raise funds to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking.
The aim for Run For Love 3 is to raise more than £250,000 to support victims of trafficking in the UK.
