“It was one of the best days of my life by reaching the finish line.”
(Frank S. Dorbor, finisher of the 10k race in November 2021)
The Liberia Marathon is the ONLY official road-running event in Liberia. It is an inclusive race for all Liberians no matter their gender, age or income. Athletes in wheelchairs and on crutches also participate.
Because it only takes one race to make a difference for thousands.
Sports have a positive impact on physical and mental health. It creates a strong sense of belonging and promotes mutual respect, fairness and tolerance. It boosts self-confidence and creates unimaginable positive energy for everyone involved.
But access to sports is nothing to be taken for granted. While in many parts of the world, people can sign up for sport clubs and sports events at any time, people in Liberia cannot.
The last Liberia Marathon in August 2022 was a rousing success. It included the full-marathon distance (26.2 miles), a half-marathon (13.1 miles) and 10k races. And because the entry fees started as low as 2,50 USD, participants from all spheres of Liberia society were able to join. The race fully represented Liberia and received international guests with open arms.
This race is the only chance for Liberian elite runners to compete in a long-distance race and get prepared for the international arena. It is also the only chance for thousands of Liberian amateur and fun runners to experience the joy of running together and the amazing individual achievement of crossing that finish line.
With an expected average cost of 40 USD per participant in order to organize a high-quality secure and safe race, your support is needed. This amount may sound high, but is actually below average for a safe, secure, and above all, professional race on global standards. Also giving the participants access to official chip-timed results, providing access to the international stage.
“It wasn’t easy. I never imagined myself engaging into such sporting activity. But I did it and it’s a motivation that anything is possible!” (Malema, female finisher)
