For the five days that you’ll be with us in Makeni we will look after everything. However, Sierra Leone is one of the world’s poorest countries and has very basic infrastructure. We will make sure your trip is as comfortable as possible but be prepared for hiccoughs like power cuts and water outages. This as part of the experience and part of the beauty and charm of Sierra Leone.

The Sierra Leone Marathon package covers the five days you’ll spend with the team in Makeni. But a visit to Sierra Leone just isn’t complete without a trip to its world-famous beaches.
We strongly recommend runners extend their stay for one or two nights and join us at Tokeh beach for a celebratory beach barbecue (on us!). This is an opportunity to reflect on your experience and share a few drinks with new friends.
Bohemian accommodation: £70 per night
A simple, yet beautiful resort overlooking the beach, with private double rooms, air conditioning. Breakfast is included.
Luxury accommodation: £120 per night
A luxury beach resort with fantastic facilities, swimming pool, restaurant and bar featuring fresh local and international cuisine. Breakfast is included.
We recommend booking the beach extension early so as to avoid disappointment – spaces are limited and rooms go fast!
