Peace and Sport

Peace and Sport

For the second consecutive year, the international organization Peace and Sport, under the High Patronage of H.S.H.Prince Albert II of Monaco, will participate as official charity in the ING New York City Marathon on 4 November 2012.

The organization is recruiting 25 people to form “Team Peace and Sport”. To run in the organization’s colours, simply register on the site:

According to the tradition established by the organizers of the marathon, runners have to commit to raise funds (€2500 or $3600), which will be entirely dedicated to projects for peace-promotion through sport in countries where Peace and Sport operates: the Great Lakes Region in Africa, Haiti, Colombia, Israel-Palestine, Timor-Leste and Côte d’Ivoire.

And the icing on the cake… the 25 Peace and Sport runners will be coached by three major running legends!

– Paula Radcliffe, undisputed Marathon Queen and current world record-holder (2h : 15min : 25 sec), three-time winner of the New York Marathon in 2004, 2007 and 2008.
– Tegla Loroupe, world record-holder for 20, 25 and 30 km; triple World Champion for half marathon and first African woman to have won the New York Marathon, winning twice in 1994 and 1995.
– Wilson Kipketer, World Champion of 800 m three times between 1995 and 1999!

These legends of the podiums are all “Champions for Peace” (a group of more of 60 athletes who support Peace and Sport’s activities). They will give participants intensive online training and provide personalized advice for unique technical, physical and mental preparation.

An opportunity not to be missed for anyone who dreams of being part of the legendary race while helping a good cause!
