We're Back!

It’s cold, grey and wet this February but the wonderful team at the Sierra Leone Marathon have just the treat to get you through the month – we’re relaunching our blog!

To celebrate we thought we’d share with you some of SLM17’s exciting news:

We’ve hit 125 runners!

We have over 125 runners registered to take part in the marathon in Makeni next May which is BRILLIANT. However, we want to make this year’s race the biggest and best yet and so we need more runners!

If you have friends, family, colleagues interested, or if you are umming and ahhing about your own participation – why not come and chat to us in person? Find out more about the race of a lifetime at our February Marathon Meetup Thursday 9th February 6.30pm - 8.30pm at The Old Dairy, Fitzrovia, London  W1T 6BW. What’s more, there will be expert talks on Hydration and Nutrition - specifically how to prepare for running in tropical conditions, from the team at Precision Hydration. and the guys behind the Old Dairy. This is not to be missed!

And if you’re hitting a bit of a training wall this January then fear not: former Sierra Leone Marathon Runner and ex-England rugby sevens captain Ollie Phillips has written a blog on how to get Marathon-ready by May - take a look here!
