There’s just one week to go until voting closes on 2017 Running Awards! We’re super excited that the Sierra Leone Marathon has been shortlisted for Best International Event! This is a HUGE opportunity for us to grow our incredible race and keep raising vital funds for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. It’s an honour to be shortlisted and we wanted to say a massive thank you to all of those who voted for us to get this far - thank you, you guys are awesome! We need you to vote again!
Why? because we now have an amazing opportunity to win this prestigious award and join the ranks of world-class events such as the Marathon de Sables and the Berlin marathon. Runner’s World dubbed us the ‘World’s Craziest and Most Worthwhile Marathon” and this has been our mantra for the last 5 epic editions of our race; we’d love to add “award-winning” to that title!
Here’s why you should vote for us:
1) In 5 years our amazing runners have raised a whopping £1.5m for Street Child – this money has helped us to transform the lives of thousands of children in West Africa.
2) This is a great opportunity for our incredible race to grow. We are always looking for new runners and a way to expand our race to make it bigger and better each year – the bigger the race, the more lives we can change in Sierra Leone!
3) We want our race to be up there with the best in the world and winning Best International Event would be an incredible opportunity for us particularly as we up against some big names
