Running Dry: 100 Marathons in 100 Days
Mina Guli had set out to run 100 marathons in 100 days for the global water crisis but due to an injury, she is no longer able to complete this marathon on her own. The global community has since been helping Mina complete her mission by running everyday.
The #RunningDry movement has shown that when we work together, we can achieve much more and go much further than alone. The purpose of Mina running 42.2 KM daily for 100 days was for 1 reason: water. She wants to inspire people to commit to water saving and become part of a global movement of waster-conscious citizens. She urges that saving water should be made famous, not because it is the right thing to do but it is the only thing to do.
“Our first day of #runningdry resulted in four recorded runs which completed a little more than one marathon! We clocked in 52 kilometers today (with a marathon being 42 km). The movement has gathered more partners and we now have a larger local presence! Join us during the week as we run for water! #everydropcounts”
Let’s continue working together for the responsible and sustainable management of our resources and our future!
At the end of Day 2, we all recorded 108.25 kilometers for the #runningdry campaign, that’s about 2.6 marathons! In total, we have donated 160.25 KM to the campaign to help Mina Guli reach her goal of 100 marathons in 100 days!
In four days we ran 548.71 KM or 13 Marathons.
“Today we were #RunningDry with the global community as we ran in excess 💯 marathons today! 🏃🏃♀️💦 Today, we ran for 124.55 KM which completed 3 marathons while over the course of the week, we ran 673.26 KM (16 Marathons) for @minaguli !”
“While today marks the last day of our local #RunningDry campaign to raise awareness of the global water crisis, we will still be advocates for the sustainable use of our resources as #everydropcounts 💦””
