Dare to run one of the World’s fastest Marathons

On 30th January, more than 11.000 runners from all over the world will be taking part in one of the most prestigious Marathons in the world.

The magical town of Marrakech offers an exceptional setting, a very mild climate in January and a beautiful circuit considered as one of the fastest in the world.

The route is a single lap that takes participants along the side of the city’s 12th-century ramparts, through the Menara gardens and on dusty roads lined with palm trees.

Do you dare to take on this picturesque marathon?

The Cause: Provide Water for Life

Water is the key to all life. Yet across the globe, a staggering 785 million people are going thirsty each and every day. Without safe and clean water to drink, these people risk dehydration, disease and at worse: death.

“The best charity is giving water to drink and He was the most generous in giving charity.” [Ahmad]

Here at Islamic Relief, we’re working worldwide in over 40 countries across the globe to ensure that not only do communities have a safe and reliable source of water for today, but for life too.

By signing up to this challenge, the funds you raise will help provide clean and safe water to families in desperate need. Sign up now and help save lives. 

Fundraising Ideas

Smarties: Buy 20 tubes of Smarties and give them to 20 of your friends. Your one condition? Once they’ve enjoyed the Smarties, they return the tubes back to you filled with as many £1 coins as they can collect in a week. You’d be surprised how much you can raise using this tactic!

Bake Sale: A true classic. How about adding a theme to your fundraiser depending on the cause you’re raising for? E.g. a blue theme if you’re fundraising to provide clean water. Or you could really go for it, sell other homemade delights alongside your delicious baked goods like milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake & custard etc.).

Car Wash: Probably the most fun thing you could do, and all you need is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You could do this at your school or workplace, or you could even ask a local business to let you use their grounds/car park. Try make it more interesting by doing it in fancy dress and get your family and friends in on all the fun!
