Description

The One World Marathon is a movement (running, walking, rolling, etc.) and team building event created and implemented by the One World Strong Foundation that exemplifies and promotes the core principles of unity, peace, collaboration and connection through running and other healthy physical activities.

The implementation of a strong, unified virtual platform that supports the message of connectivity and openness contradicts the basic premises of bigotry and separatism; providing a rigorous counter narrative to those produced by violent extremism and terrorist rhetoric.

By providing an opportunity for youth and adults from around the world to participate together in a virtual marathon (combining their miles/steps toward a team goal of 26.2 miles), we foster the development of a global citizen mindset. Participation and the resulting experiences and stories build awareness and generate support for those that struggle with both the physical and psychological challenges related to trauma. Our participants begin to learn that when a diverse global community of caring people work together toward a common goal, they can change the world.

Questions?
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

1.) Do I have to run the entire 26.2 miles?

No - Run, walk, or roll whatever distance you're capable of. Or assemble a team of runners to cover the 26.2 mile/42.2km distance together. 

2.) Can my results from another virtual marathon count towards my OWM performance?

Absolutely - Our goal is to bring together people from all around the world for a common cause. You can read more about the purpose and mission at https://www.oneworldmarathon.org/

3.) Can I be on multiple teams?

You would have to register multiple times with different email addresses to sign-up to be a part of more than one team; which is perfectly fine for us. 

4.) Can I share pictures and information about the event on social media?

We would love for you to share! Use the hashtags #OWM2020 and #strongertogether so we can easily find posts related to the event.
