The Blue Planet Run Is Off to an Exciting Start
Follow two Blue Planet Run participants as they blog about their run around the world and their efforts to help solve the water crisis, one step at a time.
On June 1st, 20 runners set off on perhaps the longest and most important run of their lives. The Blue Planet Run participants will cover 15,200 miles across 16 countries and 4 continents, running 24 hours a day for 95 days to spread an urgent message: that one-sixth of the world's population is without access to safe drinking water, and that something must be done.
Follow two of the runners, Laurel Dudley, a 26-year-old resident of Hawaii, and Melissa Moon, a 37-year-old New Zealand native, as they blog about their journey for Marie Claire.
