Submit your #RunningDry video

When the physical #RunningDry journey ends on the 11th February 2019, the movement doesn’t end (or even slow down!) We will move into creating the #RunningDry documentary: a compilation of the water heroes we’ve met along the way interspersed with Mina’s personal journey and the story of the #RunningDry community. Would you like to be part of our documentary? Here’s how to submit your video!


Everyone. It doesn’t matter how far or fast you run or walk, how old you are, what country you’re from or what language you speak. We want to show that the #RunningDry community - and the global water crisis - crosses all boundaries. We also want to show real people, so send us your unedited, raw footage and we’ll make it work!

What does this mean?

  • It would be great to see different countries, urban and rural settings, summer and winter.

  • Early morning running, afternoon running, night running.

  • Solo running and group running.

  • Road running and trail running.

  • Running and walking!


Any video you have that shows you running for water. Literally any video - we want to see it all! You don’t have to do anything with it: just send us the unedited file.

If you’d like to shoot a video specifically for the #RunningDry documentary, here are a few guidelines / suggestions to help you:

  1. Horizontal.

  2. Selfie mode or pointing at your surroundings.

  3. Shots of feet.

  4. Shots of smiley and/or sweaty faces.

  5. Shots of watches that show your distance .

  6. Shots of where you are running - anything remarkable like the beauty of a landscape, busy streets, or (bonus) water relevant areas like lakes, rivers or dams.

  7. Under a minute is preferred. Even less than that if you like!

  8. Multiple submissions are welcome! Everything doesn’t need to be in one single clip. You can submit a selfie video, a video of your feet walking, a video of your watch - you get the idea…
