Water advocate and ultra-runner Mina Guli today arrives in London to run her third marathon as part of her unprecedented #RunningDry challenge, which will see her aim to run 100 marathons in 100 days.
Launched at the New York City Marathon this past Sunday, the #RunningDry challenge will see Mina travel the globe, visiting six continents in her attempt to run 100 marathons in 100 days, finishing back in New York City on 11th February 2019.
Mina is carrying out the endurance challenge for a single simple reason – she wants to raise awareness of the looming global water crisis.
The world is facing a humanitarian crisis on an unprecedented scale. United Nations endorsed projections have shown that there will be a 40% shortfall between supply and the global demand in the availability of fresh water by 2030. The World Economic Forum has stated that global water shortage is one of the biggest issues currently facing human civilisation.
Mina is aiming to complete 100 marathons in 100 days to call on individuals to make a 100% commitment to water saving. The goal is to create a global movement of water-conscious citizens and ultimately change the way that we all consume, use and think about water.
