    All about the Mogadishu Marathon.

    Start Point: Mogadishu
    End Point: Mogadishu

    Difficulty – The 2020 event will be a half marathon distance (13 miles / 21km).
    Comfort – There is some level of comfort. The rooms have en-suite bathrooms and sometimes during the day, there is hot water but not for the entire day.

    Package 1 (race only) – this 2 night package is for those who solely want to arrive in Mogadishu, attend the race and then leave the following day.
    Cost: US$1600 per person

    Package 2 (race and guiding) – this 3 day / 2 night package is for those who wish to have a day of guiding when they arrive in Mogadishu, the following day attend the half marathon, and then leave the day after.  It is the same duration as package 1 but includes guiding on the first day.
    Cost: US$2150 per person

    Both packages include a US$200 donation towards ensuring runners from other parts of greater Somalia can compete. So by booking this trip with us, you will be enabling the race to be an event for all people from Somalia.

    Depending on popularity, we may add a third package which will also include a day of guiding and attendance of the marathon.

    You will be accompanied by an experienced English speaking Somali guide/translator and a four-man security detail for the entire time you are out of the guest house.

    Trips to Somalia do create dangers all of their own and whilst we want you to have as much freedom as possible we must state that the security team have the final word with regards to changes in the itinerary for safety reasons. Whilst security has improved recently in Mogadishu and deterioration to security could result in the cancellation of all or parts of the trip at short notice.
