Motorama CEO Mark Woelders ran with Dave on a part of his Brisbane leg shadowed by the RAA2 Team Support Vehicle, a Toyota Hiace from Motorama Toyota.
Mr Woelders praised the determination and endurance of Dave Alley and his team.
“The hours of training and commitment to these causes is a testament to Dave’s strength and character,”
“Motorama is incredibly proud to lend Dave and his team any support we can, and everyone at Motorama is looking forward to seeing him cross the finish line,” he said.
Mr Woelders expressed pride that Motorama was playing a small role in this amazing run.
“Supplying a vehicle for his historic second Race Around Australia was the least Motorama could do, and it’s amazing to think that it is carrying his team, shadowing Dave on his record-breaking run right now,” Mr Woelders said.
To become the fastest person to run around Australia, Dave has to reach 13,383 km in less than 174 days, to break the Centenary of Federation run record set by Pat Farmer in 1999.
In order to remain on track to break the record, Dave will have to run the equivalent of almost two marathons each and every day for six months. Failure to run at least 20km every day would void the run as discontinuous.
The first Race Around Australia (RAA1) raised over $30,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and this time, RAA2 is raising funds and awareness for the White Cloud Foundation, which helps to support and rehabilitate people living with depression and anxiety.
