Adam Chataway, running to support Action Aid/Vicky's Water Project

After his wife died in a cycling accident while working in Ethopia on water projects, Chataway wanted to honor her by continuing her charitable legacy. To help raise money to build a school, he has committed to run six International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) marathons on six continents inside 30 days, finishing up with the New York City Marathon. By November 4, he will have completed the Buenos Aires Marathon, Melbourne Marathon, Beijing Marathon, Nairobi Marathon and Dublin Marathon—the latter two in consecutive days.
