Running through the city of Monrovia, Liberia’s blooming capital, will be one of the most exciting race experiences of your life. The Liberia Marathon 2022 will take you through the most scenic areas the city has to offer. Running on the major roads, you will pass the historic downtown, lively and colourful residential areas and the emerging commercial district. In the longer race categories, a stretch of Monrovia’s unique city beaches is a much part of the race as the triumphal appearance on the iconic Tubman Boulevard before the finish line at the freshly renovated SKD Sportscomplex comes into sight.
All race will take place on the same round course with different starting areas, but the same finish line. Here are the details:
Full marathon (42.2k/ 26.2miles): Race start is at the SKD Sportscomplex, the national stadium located, and the course will take the runners “all around the the world”, orbitting Paynesville and Monrovia in a large circle before coming back to the SKD Sportscomplex.
