Race Day for the 10k race is set for Sunday, November 28, 2021. Runners have to register beforehand.
The Launch of the Registration Process will take place on Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 10am ‘til noon at Monrovia City Hall. Runners are very welcome to stop by and sign up for an early bird price of 1USD /200LD (for Liberians). Registration will proceed in the upcoming week at different locations all over the city.
Race Director Harris S. Momoton is encouraging all Liberians – male and female alike – to join the race. He says physical exercise is great for everyone’s health and running together creates a lot of joy.
The Liberia Marathon organizing team is also thanking its partners and supporters for the fantastic collaboration so far.
