At yesterday’s New York Marathon (Sunday 04 November 2018), water advocate and ultra-runner Mina Guli laced up her running shoes to call attention to the global water crisis by starting her mammoth project of running 100 marathons in 100 days for one reason – water. The world is facing a projected 40% shortfall between supply and demand for water by 2030 – just 12 years from now. The #RunningDry campaign will see the former lawyer and investment banker travel around the world while running a marathon a day to tell some of the world’s most pressing water stories as well highlight the everyday heroes working to solve this problem.
March 22, 2018 (New York) – Water advocate Mina Guli today launched a new initiative to bring attention to the world’s water crisis: #RunningDry will see Mina run 100 marathons in 100 days over six continents, bringing together runners, athletes, water advocates, business leaders and communities around the world. Mina launched the campaign in New York on World Water Day 2018, with her journey set to begin in New York City on November 4.
