With 2013 just getting underway, Inspired Adventures are already focusing on what adventures 2014 will bring about. We are very excited to announce that we have teamed up with Amnesty International Australia to launch our first adventure for next year – the Virgin London Marathon.
We have managed to secure 10 highly sought after spots in this event. This is a unique opportunity to become part of the Amnesty International Australia London Marathon team.
Marathons – the best way to keep fit and stay fit!
If you want a good reason to stick to your fitness goals, we can think of none that surpass this opportunity to run the London Marathon in 2014. We have 20 incredible runners taking part in the New York Marathon on November 3 this year. The 20 spots for Amnesty International Australia were quickly snapped up and our runners are training hard. They will cross the finish line in Central Park knowing that they have helped Amnesty fight injustice and defend the human rights of men, women and children around the world.
To secure your place in London 2014, contact Nadia on 1300 905 188 or visit our London Marathon 2014 information page.
Running for human rights…
“I’m Sarah, and I’m raising money for HUMAN RIGHTS for Amnesty International to go run in the New York Marathon. YES it’s an insane challenge for me and I’m super excited to be one of 20 participants taking part and raising a crapload of money for Amnesty.” Sarah
“Amnesty is famous for its relentless pursuit of human rights. For decades I’ve followed them and joined many on-line actions. But now it’s time to up my commitment. I have enrolled in the 2013 New York City Marathon and have vowed to raise at least $9,000 to support their important work.
This is no small deal for me. The last big run I did was the Perth City-to-Surf in about 1985. That was 12 kilometres, this is 42. Back then I was 78 kilos, now I am 98. Today, if I run more than a few kilometres my knees suffer pain for days. I have a lot of training to-do. Not just running but cardio and strength.” John Dobbin
“The next 12 months will be a year of firsts for me, and one of those is to complete my first Marathon. Hang on, did I just say marathon!?!?! Eeeeek! No I’m not insane…. just insanely determined, focused, energised, and at this point, insanely excited!!
What better place to complete this epic challenge than… wait for it… NEW YORK CITY BABY!!! I’ll be travelling to the Big Apple in November 2013 to tackle the 42.2km course with 45,000 other participants from around the world…. while the marathon is a personal challenge, I’ve chosen to run for a cause; the cause being Amnesty International. Amnesty is part of the global movement defending human rights and dignity.” Erin Phillips
