About Trail-Marathon du Mt. Agou

Run the Mount Kilimanjaro of Togo, called Mt. Agou. You will not step into snow but have a great experience "climbing" the peak altitude of only 986 meters. My favorite mountain villages are waiting for you. It is an undiscovered world in the heart of Togo. This Trail-Marathon is part of the Africain Marathon Challenge, a series of charity events. We will start in the area of the AGERTO project, crossing the market at Kpalimé-Zongo, running straight on dirt roads facing Mt. Agou. Running around the mountain almost before we gain altitude from KM 27 on. There is another world waiting for us: The air gets fresher, the trails narrower. Crystal clear water from the mountain will refresh you in the middle of the beautiful tropical mountain forest. The villages are artwork carved in stone. Created over centuries. As guests we'll become part of their magic for a short but intense period of time. Maybe you'll like to stay infinitely writing a novel here like I wish every time being around. But we are on the run: Downhill on narrow trails passing solitary tree giants meeting friendly local people passing by. The marathon ends in Agou Nyogbo, a peaceful village at the foot of the mountain. You will be proud and keep on smiling while trying to understand that this day will change your life...

This event will be the 2nd day of the double event: "Running the Trails of Togo: A weekend in runners paradise". Please visit www.marathon.africa for details and the interactive maps.
