About the Run

Zoë Romano is running the entire course of the Tour de France in effort to make history, raise money for the World Pediatric Project (WPP), and to prove that anything is possible if you dream big and simply begin.

May 18, 2013–July 20, 2013

What lies ahead is 2,000+ miles along a scenic but grueling course elevation changes equivalent to three and a half Mount Everest climbs. She'll start six weeks ahead of the peloton, arriving the day before them in Paris from where she’ll travel to Corsica to tackle the last part of her journey. To accomplish this task in nine weeks, she'll run an average of 30 miles each day. Together with filmmaker Alexander Kreher documenting her journey, she hopes to raise significant funds and awareness to benefit WPP and the thousands of children who will benefit from its services.
