On the 19 of April 2015, Running Heroes organised the very first connected race in the world: UNICEF Heroes Day. On that day, 5 552 runners ran 10 kilometers in 36 different countries, raising 132,715 euros for UNICEF to help protect and educate the most vulnerable children.
Following this huge success, Running Heroes and UNICEF decided to launch the second edition: the Team Unicef World Run. This second connected race is a 10k race to complete between 0.01am and 11.59pm on Sunday the 15 of November 2015 by team of 4 runners. You choose your route, wherever you are, running with your GPS application or GPS device.
