Andy’s running the New Forest Marathon for MapAction


Andy Murdock is running the New Forest multi-terrain Marathon on the 9th September in aid of MapAction, a UK based charity that provides mapping support to humanitarian relief efforts. Andy commented “As a geographer, it’s really impressive for me to see how MapAction use maps and geographical information to help save lives following natural and other disasters; helping assess the damage, identifying those affected and providing information that helps coordinate the response. It’s an amazing charity”. If you would like to sponsor him or to learn more about the charity, please visit his fund-raising page.
