In 2015 for the first time ever, a marathon was held in Afghanistan, a marathon that both men and women were able to participate in but they had to keep it a secret. Why? There are still places in the world where women are not allowed to run or walk outside. However, a community in Afghanistan is courageously carving out a new way forward for the next generation. By creating safe races they are helping to create safe places. We want to help.
Join Elizabeth May as she gives the official countdown for the Victoria The Secret Marathon 3K run/walk. Held on the eve of International Women’s Day, this race celebrates our right to be free to run. We’re inviting men and women to come together in solidarity supporting the right all humans should have to walk or run free of fear in their community.
This event is open to the public, but requires registration. For more information and to register, please visit the event website.
