Marathons

We organise packages to some of the world's most unusual marathons in Somaliland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Mogadishu. At all of these events, we either help support the race itself or support local runners. So by taking part you are not only having a great adventure but helping runners in other regions have access to training and to take part in events. It's a win-win.
