Prayer warriors in running shoes are set to visit cities throughout the country as they stop to pray for life. 

LIFE Runners involves hundreds of people who are part of pro-life teams running to draw attention to preborn children.

"We're getting ready to kick off the across-America relay in New York City and San Francisco," says spokewoman Charla Cloutier. "And it's going to be 40 days of running and walking to remember the unborn across the entire country."

The cross-country route is 5,564 miles of running and walking over 40 days beginning today, February 18, which is Ash Wednesday. 

The route is well planned so participants in LIFE Runners can make full use of their time, but not just by running.

"The relay routes actually passes by various churches, abortion facilities and pregnancy help centers," Cloutier advises. "We do have a number of stopping points scheduled to allow time for prayer at these different locations."

Time permitting, runners will be making pro-life speeches at various locales.

Last year there were 306 relay runners from 28 states, ranging in age from 12 to 72, and the numbers are expected to be larger this year.

Funds raised will go to pro-life pregnancy centers.
