For those who are yet to sign up, this is your moment to pick our brains and find out how you can tailor your Sierra Leone experience to suit you. For those who have signed up already, this is a great opportunity to meet the Street Child team, mingle with fellow 2018 runners, and flag any questions you may have with the team!

January Meet Up

We had our first 2018 meet up in mid- January and had a cracking time chatting with some of our runners and meeting new faces. We had a presentation detailing the ins and outs of the trip, lots of questions, and lots of drinks! 

Bristol Meet Up

We had a great meet up in Bristol last February, thank you very much to everyone who came along! Those who came got to hear all about our award winning Sierra Leone Marathon and West Africa Cycle Challenge, as well as the different ways to get involved and visit our work this summer.

November Meet Up

Interested in taking on the Sierra Leone Marathon next year? Come along and enjoy a drink whilst learning a bit more about the trip and the race itself. We'll be sharing details of the week and the different ways you can get involved - whether you're a keen marathon runner or more interested in one of our volunteering options. Joined by the Street Child team and registered runners, it will be a great chance to get to know the growing SLM community.
