The Corporate Challenge.
Bring together a group from your company to participate in the unique and challenging Sierra Leone Marathon, all in support of Street Child. Set over a bank holiday weekend, the award-winning five-day adventure will see you take on a life-changing challenge, developing unique skills and changing children’s lives.
Walking, jogging or running 5km, 10km, half or the full marathon with a team of your colleagues is an extraordinary experience. In the days before the award-winning marathon, teams will visit some of Street Child’s projects in northern Sierra Leone. These offer a unique opportunity to see the impact your support has on the lives of children, families and whole communities across Sierra Leone. With 750 runners in total, including 175 international runners, 2017 was our biggest marathon yet. Help us make 2018 even more successful by bringing a team from your company to compete in “the world’s most worthwhile marathon”.
