This Sunday, September 25th, Orlando will host the Global Energy Race, which benefits in part the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
37 cities around the world, in 22 countries, will be participating in this race. Bimbo Bakeries USA, is the US host with 4 cities in America. Runners will be working to "stomp out hunger" as they run. For each kilometer run by each participant, Bimbo Bakeries USA will donate two slices of bread to a Feeding America food bank, or a loaf of bread per 10k.
The race, which has a 10k race and a 3k race, will also be a Guiness World Records attempt for the most number of cities participating in the same race on the same day. First place male and female runners of the 10k will receive an all expenses paid trip to ANY 2017 Global Energy Race participating city (side note, when I registered, it said that to win the trip, you must be wearing the race shirt at the race. So if you're speedy, make sure you consider that.) Awards will be given to the top three male and female runners in each city. 10k runners will receive medals and 3k runners will receive pins. Starting this year, both the t-shirts and medals will be part of a series, with this year being from Beijing.
