The Secret Marathon 3K (Halifax)

This is a 3K outdoor run/walk event held in 20 cities across Canada including Halifax.. In 2015 for the first time ever, a marathon was held in Afghanistan, a marathon that both men and women were able to participate in but they had to keep it a secret. Why? There are still places in the world where women are not allowed to run or walk outside. However, a community in Afghanistan is courageously carving out a new way forward for the next generation. By creating safe races they are helping to create safe places. We want to help. Held on the week of International Women's Day, this race celebrates our right to be free to run. We're inviting men and women to come together in solidarity supporting the right all humans should have to walk or run free of fear in their community. Based on the huge success of our first year we are excited to partner for a second year with The Running Room, Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan) and The Secret Marathon documentary film. By participating you are helping us to share the story through film and by making a donation you are helping to further the work of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. Together we can empower women and girls through education and sport. To learn more about The Secret Marathon documentary film and our partners please visit
