As the world’s oldest annual marathon and one of the best-known road racing events, this marathon is an extra special one for me – it will be my sixth and final World Marathon Major, earning me the title of Six Star Finisher. That means I’ll have successfully run the six major marathons in the world: London, Berlin, Chicago, New York, Tokyo and Boston.
Not only will that be a huge personal achievement, but I’ll reach that milestone while representing Charity Right as an Ambassador and championing their important cause. Because at the end of the day, it’s for children in need all over the world; children who go hungry every day, unable to attend school or break the cycle of poverty.
With Charity Right providing school meals across 8 countries – Yemen, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sudan, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Malawi and Turkey – these children have a chance for a new life, a fresh start.
