Running for Reconciliation

Raising money for: Concordis International

Peter Marsden

The Challenge

I'm running the challenging Clarendon Way marathon in October to raise awareness and funds for the brilliant work of Concordis International.

The Charity

Concordis works alongside those affected by armed conflict to achieve lasting peace. Concordis brings people together from across conflict divides, facilitating dialogue, so that people can reconcile their differences, and move forward together in unity.

The Training

I haven't been able to run for the past 18 months due to injury, so that makes this marathon all the more challenging! I have just started my training with exactly two months to go... I am a passionate believer in the work of Concordis; their peace building work is actively changing people's lives for the better, in places that are often torn apart by conflict. The value of Concordis' work is what is driving me to get back in shape in time to complete this marathon.
