Yet this New York is a Ukrainian village located in the Donetsk region, less than a mile from the front line. The Marathon in New York No One Wants to Run aims to draw the world's attention to Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine.
Anyone willing could take part in the run, overcoming any distance in any part of the world, and thus express their support for Ukraine. It has been seven years since Russia occupied Crimea and launched its war in Eastern Ukraine. It has de facto occupied two Ukrainian regions, a territory of over 6,000 sq mi, forcing over 1,5 million people to flee their homes, and 3 million to seek humanitarian assistance on a daily basis. For the Ukrainian people, this is an everyday run to survive with no finish line in sight.Without any support, it's a grueling task. This is why Ukrainians decided to launch their own Marathon in New York - in a small Ukrainian village also named New York, located in the Donetsk region, less than a mile from the front line. A marathon that aims to remind the world that the war waged by Russia in Ukraine is still ongoing, and to potentially get support from hundreds of thousands of people. For the marathon's first five runners, this war is by now an inseparable part of daily life. Soldier, a volunteer, an army medic, a war correspondent, and an IDP (internally displaced person). They urge the world to join them on their run. To support Ukraine, the organizers called on everyone to register for the Marathon in New York No One wants to run on the website. Everyone who registered was sended a "starter package" of the marathon. It included a collection of facts about the war. In addition, a marathon medal with an inlaid piece of bullet shell from Eastern Ukraine offered as a token of appreciation to every participant who helps Ukrainians reach the finish line and feel that they are not running this marathon alone. A few hours after the start of the marathon campaign, more than 1,000 people from 15 countries signed up. The medal is our gratitude to everyone who supports Ukrainians in their daily marathon for life and freedom. Participation in the race was free of charge, but the support of participants is invaluable.
