About the Liberia Marathon

This one word that today defines both Liberia and the Liberia Marathon is potential. As Liberia’s story of progress and development is not yet complete, nor is the Liberia Marathon’s – it is just starting. In 2022, the race continues.

The Liberia Marathon 2022 will lift the race to new levels by growing bigger and better and adding new exciting features as drivers of progress while maintaining and institutionalizing proven success factors. 

The Liberia Marathon has always been a race for all Liberians to join. No matter your age and gender, no matter your income or previous running experience – please come and sign up. Competitions for disabled athletes in wheelchairs and on crutches have also been an established component of all the Liberia Marathon editions and will continue to do so. 

Globally, the female participation in road races is finally increasing and the Liberia Marathon is keen to follow the trend. The Liberia Marathon Trust wants to attract female participation in all races and cannot wait to cheer many women over the finish line.

Any of the Liberian Marathon edition so far has impressed by its high standards. Accurate time measurement is provided through a chip timing system, which allows any finisher to have official evidence of their performance. Attendance of athletes from the region and beyond is promoted and the guests are warmly welcomed in the country.
