Join Smiling Villages Int'l Marathon

Sorry, this race is canceld due to political unrests expected in December 2019.

Welcome to the 2nd Smiling Villages Marathon. Welcome to the Gambia. It is one of two charity marathons in Gambia in 2020. The Smiling Villages Marathon will be run in the area of Bwiam and Kanilai on the south bank of the Gambia river.

During the first edition in february 2019 we could not reach Kanilai by car. The village people stopped us two kilometers earlier. We had to dance with them into the village. The most beautiful welcome ceremony I have ever experienced on one of my 300 marathons: Dancing with the people of the Smiling Villages.

Charity-Background: In Gambia we have familiar contacts with the Gambian soccer federation and shipped already a lot of equipment to build up a computer class using special educational software. We support the youth work of the FC Yama and the school in Kanilai.
