Running for peace and hope in Iraqi Kurdistan

 Spare Change News - USA 01 February 2019

An Italian American freelance journalist living in Iraqi Kurdistan writes about running a marathon in an Islamic country as a woman. The Erbil Marathon was created in 2011 to bring hope and peace to a country torn apart by violence. Drawing over 5,000 runners this year, it is a huge point of pride for the Kurds. As Smith discovered, this marathon is far more meaningful than your average sports event. (671 Words) - By Taylor Smith
