Palestinian running team fundraising for UK trip

Right to Movement Palestine, a team of Palestinian runners, are coming to Wales in June to take part in the Welsh Castles Relay.

Right to Movement Palestine was established in 2012 and take their name from Article 13 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, The Right to Freedom of Movement. RTM uses running as a tool to highlight the basic human right of freedom of movement and to empower women to be the future leaders and runners of Palestine. RTM has nine branches all over Palestine and a few international branches. We initiated the Palestine Marathon which takes place in Bethlehem each year and is listed by AIMS (Approved International Marathons and distance Races).

They are fundraising to to pay for race fees, accommodation and transport – donate here.

If anyone is keen to run with them, you can be put on the reserve list in case there are any visa dramas.

Also, if you know anyone who could lend them a minibus from 6th-9th June please get in touch:
