The 2014 Sierra Leone Marathon covered in the Evening Standard

Martin Forsyth

The 2014 Sierra Leone Marathon was held on the 25th May in Makeni and attracted over 900 runners, with around 150 runners from around the world travelling to Sierra Leone to compete and visit our projects across the country.

The Sierra Leone Marathon is unique as a fundraising event, as our runners were able to meet many of the people who will directly benefit from the money they have raised. The first Brit to cross the line was James Tarran from Leeds. He said, "Every village I ran through, people shouted out 'thank you'. It was very humbling."

The event was featured in a two-page spread in the London Evening Standard: click here for the full article.

Between all of our international runners, they had already raised around £200,000 by race day - and have continued to fundraise since returning home. With all donations being matched pound for pound by the government, this year is set to be even more successful than our previous two events.
