Overview of the Sierra Leone Marathon
Described by Runners World Magazine as 'quite possibly the world's most worthwhile marathon'.
Where: Makeni, Sierra Leone. Makeni is the largest town in the north of Sierra Leone with a population of approx 100,000. It is about 120 miles (two hours' drive) from the capital Freetown.
When: 28 May 2017 - run starts at 0600 local time.
What will the route be like: The marathon will be run on both tarred (approximately 30%) and rural roads (approximately 70%), the majority of which are hard-packed mud roads. The route will take in some of the most beautiful scenes of Northern Sierra Leone.
What will the climate be like: Sierra Leone has a tropical climate, warm temperatures and high humidity. June is on the cusp of the dry season moving into the rainy season. The run will be hot - but with a dawn start to avoid the worst of the heat and regular water and rehydration stops, not too hot!
