On average, women and girls in developing countries walk approximately 4 miles a day, carrying 40 pounds of water. In some areas, it is common for this journey to take more than 15 hours a week. Although many steps are being taken, millions remain at the same spot: without clean water.

The last 40 days of this year from November 22 until New Years Eve, endurance athlete Katie Spotz has committed to run 4 miles every day on the treadmill. That equals a total of 250,000 steps!

Why? The goal is to inspire action for 1,779 people in Tanzania to gain access to clean water and raise $6,540 for three clean water projects. We have partnered with H2O for Life to fund a water project at Iwindi Primary School, Idodi Primary School, and Mtitu Primary School in Tanzania.

You are invited to join the challenge! Run 4 miles any day or every day from Monday, November 22nd until Friday, December 31st, on the treadmill or outdoors.


BONUS! Special prizes to participants including endurance fuel, recovery sandals, running hat, and a gift card thanks to Tailwind Nutrition, OOFOS, Athleta, and Get Sprints!
