How important is it to become a member?

Since 2016, in partnership with the Bhutan Olympic Committee, the Sister Marathons Peace Initiative has helped build capacity for the Bhutan International Marathon as well as youth and Olympic sports programs in the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Culturally rich, the Kingdom of Bhutan is one of the smallest countries in the world with limited natural resources. Sister Marathons envisions providing the largest source of funding to sports capacity in the country from contributions from individual members and donors in the membership community.

In the coming months and years we intend to develop high quality programs and improve upon the ones we have developed during our successful first years. The Sister Marathons Peace Initiative has partnered with many amazing marathons in the hopes of building 25,000 members by the end of Fiscal Year 2017.

Future Member Gifts will facilitate the Sister Marathons Peace Initiative to change lives for youths across the globe. Join the Team today and help us make an invaluable resource in your life – and the global running community.
