North Vancouver primary teacher Ian Cunliffe began his epic journey last week running over 1,100 km to raise awareness of classroom conditions.

Ian began in Sparwood on Wednesday, and is attempting a marathon a day for 22 days to draw public attention to cuts in public education.

Ian is a primary school teacher and teacher-librarian with the North Vancouver school district. He is a parent of two young children and has completed several ultra marathons, including the world’s toughest race, the Marathon Des Sables (a 240 km race across the Sahara).
