#RUNNINGDRY movement: 100 marathons in 1 day

Video: Jared Paisley

When I set out to run 100 marathons in 100 days for the global water crisis, I thought I could do it alone. But the #RunningDry movement has shown me that together, we can go so much further. Let’s see if we can run 100 marathons in 1 day for 1 reason: water.

Please join me for the global #RunningDry marathon on Sunday 27th January 2019.

No matter where in the world you are, no matter how far you can run or walk, donate your distance by posting on social media with #RunningDry and let’s spread awareness of the global water crisis. Together, we can do it!

How to help:

  1. Run or walk as many kilometres or miles as you can on Sunday 27th January 2019.

  2. Take a photo and post it on your social media channel/s. Include the distance and the hashtag #RunningDry so we can track it.

  3. Invite your friends to join #RunningDry 100 marathons in 1 day.

  4. Share a water fact or tip (choose one from below!)


Water facts:

  • Water scarcity affects more than 40% of the global population and is projected to rise. (UNDP)

  • 3.6 billion people worldwide (nearly half the global population) are already living in potential water-scarce areas at least one month per year. This could increase to 4.8 to 5.7 billion in 2050. (UNESCO, 2018)

  • Each day, nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diseases. (UNDP)

  • 4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines. (UNDP)

  • The World Economic Forum ranks water crises among the top global societal risks in terms of impact.
