NZ runners head for Great Wall of China Marathon

NZ runners head for Great Wall of China Marathon
- The Influence Crew has been training and fundraising for over a year to get there. Tonight, they depart on the first leg of their life-changing journey
The day Influence leader Doug Healey and his crew have been preparing for has finally come as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
Doug Healey says, “We've got people age range from 70-25. Health wise, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer survivors and sufferers, heart failure, we've even got one on board with a pace maker so everything you could imagine that could happen to someone they're there.”
They've been training for the last 52 weeks for the full marathon, half marathon and 8.5km fun run. For many of them, it's their first marathon ever.
