The United Nations General Assembly adopted the “Sanitation for All” Resolution in 2013, designating 19 November as UN World Toilet Day. Each year, World Toilet Organization commemorates this day with the Global Urgent Run.

The Global Urgent Run is a call for urgent action to end the sanitation crisis. It aims to bring communities around the world together, to raise awareness for the global sanitation challenge and engage people with sanitation issues in their local communities.

Come Join Us for a fun 5km Run at East Coast Park!

It’s time to give a crap!

Why the Urgent Run?

Sanitation is a basic human right.
Yet, 2.4 billion people in the world do not have access to proper sanitation - the equivalent of ⅓ of the world’s population!
The silence around the impact of poor sanitation has dire consequences for human health, dignity and equality. So c’mon, this is your chance to give a crap!
