Red Bull’s team principal Christian Horner and chief technical officer Adrian Newey will be swapping tyres for trainers next month when they take part in the Silverstone Half Marathon to raise money for the team’s official charity, Wings for Life. Both hope to complete three laps of the British Grand Prix circuit.

Running as key members of a Red Bull Racing Management Team, Horner and Newey will be joined by other company employees and a group of Formula One fans who will have the chance to train with James De Montfort, Red Bull Racing’s head fitness trainer. They will also receive a tour of the team’s UK factory in Milton Keynes.

“I’m not sure I’m going to be setting any new lap records, but I’m looking forward to the event,” said Horner, who has been spotted running around the Jerez circuit with Newey during this week’s F1 testing in Spain. “Red Bull Racing is proud to be supporting Wings for Life. They are an inspiring charity.”

Wings for Life was established in 2004 and is committed to finding a cure for spinal cord injury. The charity organises a range of fundraising events for supporters in the UK and Silverstone Half Marathon on March 11 will kick off their 2012 fundraising calendar.
