- Personally I am happy to see this initiative which expands the work of The World Runners Club. And I join fellow world-runner Tom Denniss in the World Runners Association where we expect soon to also be able to welcome for example Tony Mangan who is on the last kms of his world run at the moment [I'll visit him on the route 21-27. October to take part in the run to his finish in Dublin on 27th. Oct. 2014].
