Race Description

The 2016 Sierra Leone Marathon will be our fifth outing for Street Child’s flagship fundraising challenge: a marathon, half-marathon, 5k or 10k race through some of the most beautiful scenery in Northern Sierra Leone. Our 3, 5 or 7 day packages combine your selected race distance with project visits offering you the chance to meet and draw inspiration from the very children and families you’ve been raising funds for… and the chance to relax on one of Sierra Leone’s stunning beaches.

Described by Runner’s World as

“the most worthwhile marathon in the world”, the Street Child Sierra Leone Marathon is a charity event that allows you to support and experience the beautiful communities of Sierra Leone.
