Participants of the 24th edition of the No Finish Line Monaco event have gone above and beyond in reaching and smashing the 300,000 kilometre goal set by the event’s organising association, Children & Future.
After eight days of non-stop running, jogging or walking, the Fontvieille based NFL circuit closed with a lap of honour just after 16:00 on Sunday, November 19, with the total recorded distance standing at a more than acceptable 315,516 kilometres.
Approximately 10,500 individuals contributed to this lengthy distance, which will be converted into euros to support sick or disadvantaged children through the Children & Future association. The conversion of every kilometre into a euro is made possible by a variety of local companies that sponsored the charity event.
The individual with the most kilometres on the clock at the end of this NFL was Daniele Juan Alimonti, who recorded a staggering 927 kilometres over the course of eight days, winning the Prince’s Cup for most distance covered by a difference of 27 kilometres. The ultra marathon runner has previously won the cup in 2019 and 2022.
First in the female rankings and fifth in general, Mimi Chevillon recorded 767 kilometres, almost the same distance that it would take someone to travel from the Principality to Brussels.
The team with the highest kilometre count was ‘Courir pour Céline’ with 11,919 kilometres, ahead of the Barclays Monaco and Fight Aids team with 10,730.
A colossal sum of 4.8 million euros has been raised since the first NFL in 1999, and that sum will keep growing with the 25th edition of NFL Monaco, from November 16 to 24, 2024.
