Horner, Newey for Silverstone Half Marathon

Red Bull's Christian Horner and Adrian Newey will lead the F1 team's presence in this year's Wings for Life 'fund-run' at Silverstone.
Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner and chief technical officer Adrian Newey have confirmed that they will be swapping tyres for trainers on Sunday 11 March when they take part in the Silverstone Half Marathon to raise money for Wings for Life.

Running as key members of a Red Bull Racing Management Team, the pair will be joined by other company employees and a team of F1 fans who will have the chance to train with James De Montfort, Red Bull Racing's head fitness trainer, as well as receiving a tour of the team's factory in Milton Keynes.

The runners will be put through their paces at the sell-out Silverstone event, each hoping to make it round three laps of the track, and both Horner and newey have been spotted running around the Jerez circuit during breaks in this week's opening f1 group test.

“Red Bull Racing is proud to be supporting Wings for Life at the Silverstone Half Marathon," Horner admitted, "They are an inspiring charity, which does great work for spinal cord research. I'm not sure I'm going to be setting any new lap records, but I'm looking forward to the event.”

Wings for Life is Red Bull Racing's official charity, with Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and former driver David Coulthard are all ambassadors. Established in 2004, Wings For Life is committed to finding a cure for spinal cord injury, and organises a range of fundraising events for supporters in the UK. The Silverstone Half Marathon kicks off the charity's 2012 fundraising calendar.

“The Silverstone Half Marathon is a brilliant event for Wings for Life to kick-start the beginning of a very exciting year of fundraising," Nikki Wilson, Head of Wings for Life UK, commented, "We're extremely grateful for all of the support given by our entrants and Red Bull Racing, which will be integral to another year of fundraising towards spinal cord research.”
