From the team…
“People told me that running and finishing this race is an awesome experience. They totally underrated it. I almost cried with elation. Not the best time but ran non-stop and barefoot the whole way. Even gave a bloke with severe shin splints a shoulder to the finish line.”
– John Dobbin, Team Amnesty 2013 NYC Marathon 4:35h
Congratulations Team Amnesty!

Team Amnesty have successfully completed the 2013 ING New York City Marathon! On a clear, cool and windy day, Team Amnesty joined more than 45,000 other excited runners at the starting line at the southern tip of Staten Island. Cheered on by approximately 2 million spectators, our team hit the streets to help Amnesty International fight injustice and defend human rights.
This is an amazing achievement and each runner should be very proud of their race and their fundraising journey. We know we are! Stay tuned for more photos and to hear from the team – we think they deserve a little rest first!

Amnesty International and the 2013 ING New York City Marathon
This year, we are proud to have a passionate team of Amnesty International runners in the 2013 ING New York City Marathon. Team Amnesty will take to the streets of New York City to help Amnesty International fight injustice and defend human rights.
Right now, people just like you, face human rights abuses, discrimination, violence, imprisonment, torture and even death. Their crime is usually something we take for granted everyday – the freedom of speech, religion, politics or love.
Follow Team Amnesty as they pound the pavement in the Big Apple to defend the rights of men, women and children around the world. Support Team Amnesty!
