Mark Webber has launched a new challenge to give people the chance to compete alongside him in a running event in Tasmania.
The Red Bull Formula 1 driver has unveiled the Adventure Run, which will give people the opportunity to run with him on a 6.5-km course through the Hobart area in the buildup to his five-day Tasmania Challenge. The run will take place on Dec. 4, three days before the start of the Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge itself.
"This is a run designed for everyone and it's a great opportunity for people to come to Tasmania, get involved and join in the fun," Webber said. "The five-day event takes us to some of the most remote parts of the world – and this event has a touch of that adventure but it is right in Hobart's backyard.
"Just like with the Swisse Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge, everyone who competes will help to raise money for charity, with the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program to receive considerable support from the event. So walk it, run it, bring the kids, just come along and I'm sure with what we have planned everyone will have a great day."
The Adventure Run will start at the Henry Jones Art Hotel, in the centrer of Hobart, and take runners into the Queens Domain and back again.
