The Sister Marathon Peace Initiative materialized through the support of marathoners and running enthusiasts, international race directors and volunteers who are determined to bring peace and goodwill to the world through the sport of running.
It’s about the journeys you take, the paths you navigate and the people you meet along the way. Our member community aims to build lasting friendships across cultures that serve to bring the world closer together.
Our member-base consists of volunteers, fans and athletes of all levels who want to experience their passion for running with the excitement of exploring other countries and cultures.
Currently we are showcasing the Bhutan International Marathon for March 2017.
100% of the proceeds of this destination trip go to charity.
Join us on our once-in-a-lifetime running vacation. Everyone is welcome.
The Sister Marathon Peace Initiative is a not-for-profit organization. Proceeds from sales are donated back into the communities where we run. When you accompany us on destination retreats or join us for marathons, your support directly impacts the communities where we run!Learn more
