6 marathons, 6 continents, 6 months!
A global running adventure to raise money for Women for Women International
This site is dedicated to the journey of two small-town girls as they use their passion for running to create some positive change for women struggling to rebuild their families and communities after the devastation of war.
Beginning in July, 2013, Lindsay King and Carrie Saylor will take their love of (obsession with?) running to a whole new level. Living on a shoestring budget, they will travel to six different continents in six months, running a marathon in each before moving on. They look forward to the challenges of culture shock, volunteering with local charities in each country, and training for grueling marathons in unfamiliar territory.
Yet these self-inflicted challenges are nothing compared to the hardships endured by women surviving in war-torn, oppressed areas. For this reason Lindsay and Carrie decided to dedicate their journey to raising money and awareness for the human rights organization, Women for Women International. Please join us in our adventures, setbacks, and triumphs as we literally Race-for-Change!
