I am Temi Odurinde. I will be running the 2022 edition of Paris Marathon, on the 3rd of April 2022. I am running the Marathon to raise money for Bees for Development, an exceptional charity.
Bee for Development combines two of my passions: advocating for bees and overseas development and much more. You should visit their website to find out more about what they do.
Why the Paris Marathon?
Apart from the desire to raise money for bees and other pollinators, I enjoy long distance running. I ran the Paris Marathon in 2012, so running it in 2022 will be the 10th anniversary of my first Paris Marathon.
Getting a place in the Paris Marathon is also much easier than getting a place in the London Marathon, so it’s Paris for me the second time!
