Crowds lined the streets of Beirut as a women’s marathon snaked its way through the city this week.
Women from all walks of life – the handicapped, the young and the elderly – participated in the event aimed at empowering women through sports and geared towards reminding women that health is vital.
A number of men also joined in the campaign which ran under the slogan “Run forward, there is no going back” . . .
