The ‘CHASQUI’ runners [as in the current ‘Project Peru’ logo, a design derived from Mochica pottery] were used as relay runners to deliver messages and goods throughout Peru.
The Moche or Mochica culture prevailed in the northern coastal region of Peru from about 100 AD TO 800 AD.
YOU TOO COULD RUN FOR PERU!
We have had successful Marathon OR Half Marathon runners for Project Peru… in PARIS and in LONDON and EDINBURGH and 10k’s in Manchester and Edinburgh and, as below, the HALF MARATHON in SANTIAGO…and many other runs such as the Great North Run, Iron Man Triathlons in Italy, Spain and Brazil and the Half Marathon des Sables in Peru.
Even if you don’t know us but are looking for a charity to support in future marathons, or half marathons…or triathlons…or 10k or 5k … we are small and ‘hands-on’, with minimum overheads and have many years experience of running a successful project in Peru. We would welcome your support.
