2012 Sierra Leone Marathon. 

In June 2012, we organised our first-ever Sierra Leone Marathon with a special thanks to Kiln who sponsored the event. 

Hundreds of runners from the UK and beyond travelled to Makeni, Sierra Leone to take on the ultimate African marathon and raised nearly half a million pounds for our work.
