Background:

On August 25, 2013, coinciding with the country’s 10 years of peace celebration, the success and excitement from 2011 was repeated and extended. Under the motto “Liberia, Rising.

This year Liberia will host her third Liberia Marathon. This official, 26.2 miles, street running race hosted in major cities all over the world, will provide constructive role models, foster community cohesion and offer Liberians the chance to compete internationally and transform the country’s image.

Our long-term vision is a mass public event, where runners participate for charity and the public good in an internationally respected annual race that also develops elite distance runners to represent Liberia on the world stage.
