In line with the continuous series of challenges he sets for himself, international Lebanese deserts runner Ali Wehbi exceeded all expectations in his latest 2018 milestone. This year, to raise awareness on autism and celebrate World Autism Awareness Day, Wehbi decided to run the Lebanese coast non-stop from North to South, scoring a new Guinness record in the Arab world.
Supported by the leading sportswear brand, adidas, Ali ran from the town of Arida in the North of Lebanon to the coastal town of Naqoura in less than 40 hours. His extreme physical challenge was "boosted" by Ultra Boost, adidas' most technically-advanced running shoe yet, providing unprecedented comfort and energy to runners.
The Ultra Boost shoes accompanied Wehbi through his journey, contributing in maximum foot precision fit and breathability while returning energy with each step made. It is worth mentioning that Ali is known for conquering the greatest deserts in the world and has been running for humanitarian causes, including autism, for many years.
