Secret Marathon 3K walk/run. March 6, 6:30 p.m., Running Room, 210 Hunter St. W., Peterborough.
The Peterborough chapter is Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan) is hosting the second-annual Secret Marathon during the week of International Women’s Day. Similar events are happening simultaneously in 16 other cities across Canada, celebrating everyone’s right to be free to run.
The walk/run is named after the documentary about the first official marathon of Afghanistan where the route had to be kept secret to avoid being a target for terrorism.
Women and men are invited to follow the example set by the brave runners in Afghanistan and unite for freedom, gender equality and safe spaces for all. Funds collected from The Secret Marathon 3K supports raising awareness about gender equality through The Secret Marathon film (scheduled to be released Fall 2019) and donations collected will provide access to education for women and girls in Afghanistan, through CW4WAfghan.
