"You can run anywhere", beams Christian Schiester in front of the impressive backdrop of the Seychelles. "Whether deep in the jungle or in the middle of the city, just put on your running shoes and off you go!"

True to this motto, Christian Schiester and his partner Daniela embarked on a unique journey on their sailing boat "El Toro" in 2017, dubbed Sail and Run. Their joint goal: sailing around the world in 7 years, enjoying nature, dropping anchor in the most unusual places in the world and run - there is only one fixed date every year for Schiester: the Wings for Life World Run.
"I run for those who can’t, because it’s not a given that we are well and healthy," states Christian. On the 6th of May 2018, he will run on the Cocos Islands, an Australian-owned archipelago in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The Wings for Life World Run App makes it possible!

"The Wings for Life World Run App is the perfect way for me and many thousands of other participants to take part in the run completely hassle-free, no matter where we are," Christian concludes, happy with his unique opportunity to start his run for the good cause in the thick of the jungle.
"On my last landing on the Seychelles, before the big race on the Cocos Islands, I tried to prepare as well as possible. On the Cocos Islands however, I will have no choice but to run straight into the jungle until the catcher car overtakes me - no matter how fast, no matter how far."
