Last month we took a group of 15 runners to compete in the third edition of the Marathon of Afghanistan – Afghanistan’s only mixed gender sporting event. Here are a few snaps to give you an impression of their experience.
There are some great shots of the start of the race in this report by NBC.
The Marathon organisers are currently trying to raise additional funds to expand a mixed-gender marathon training group that they support. If you are keen to help out then click here for more details.
