Sierra Leone Marathon
The Sierra Leone Marathon takes place in Sierra Leone, West Africa. It is run in support of Street Child, a UK charity which creates educational opportunity for the world's most vulnerable children.
This African marathon experience is the only marathon where runners are united behind the same fundraising goal and have an opportunity to meet the very children whom their fundraising will support. WIll you join us in 2017?

SIERRA LEONE MARATHON 29th MAY 2016
The fifth Sierra Leone Marathon combining some of the most stunning scenery in West Africa with the kind of atmosphere that only Sierra Leone can offer took place on Sunday May 29th 2016. Read the race report here.
Fundraising for the Sierra Leone Marathon 2016 went towards our Girls Speak Out appeal which aimed to ensure that more than 20,000 children can go to school and stay there and offered girls across Sierra Leone and Liberia the chance to speak out for the first time to help ensure that the issues preventing them from gaining a safe, secure education cannot continue to be ignored.
