After a two year Covid induced hiatus, we are so excited to announce the Sierra Leone Marathon is officially back!
Join us in Makeni on the 1st – 6th June 2022 and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Sierra Leone Marathon. Take on this epic challenge of a lifetime and run in the footsteps of hundreds of competitors who have gone before you. A unique opportunity to discover the beautiful scenery of Northern Sierra Leone with Street Child.
The Sierra Leone Marathon is more than just a race. You will have the opportunity to see the impact of your fundraising when exploring Northern Sierra Leone where Street Child’s rural and urban projects are situated and attend workshops with the Street Child Sierra Leone teams.
Your epic racing adventure will begin at dawn, finishing back at Wusum stadium in Makeni to a hand-carved medal and a cold beer. After a well-deserved rest that evening you have the option to take a triumphant flight home or continue your journey to one of Sierra Leone’s tropical beaches. We can even arrange a short holiday or onward safari for you.
Don’t just take our word for it, Runners World Magazine named this
“the craziest and most worthwhile marathon.”
Winding through tropical jungle and local villages, the marathon route will take you across some of the most beautiful scenery in Northern Sierra Leone. From a full and half marathon to a 10k or 5k option there is something for all running abilities and regardless of your distance, each will give you a unique perspective on this beautiful country.
Our director, Rob Morley, has been to and run the Sierra Leone Marathon on a number of occasions, so he knows first-hand what a great experience it is and his advice is indispensable.
