About the event

Welcome to the 6th edition of the Trail-Marathon in the majestic Atacora mountain chain. This is part of the African Marathon Challenge, a unique experience! We will start with a breakfast at the AGERTO (Association Germano-Togolaise) NGO in the historic city of Kpalimé. We will then begin our journey, running up paved roads, crossing the border to Ghana after 12km. We will be exploring the lush butterfly trails, taking in the peaceful mountain villages before reaching two spectacular waterfalls. Here, you will receive a free massage! Then, the finish line awaits with local food and traditional music in Kuma Konda, one of the beautiful villages. This event will be the first day of the "Running the Trails of Togo: A weekend in runners paradise". As part of this, we will be contributing to several charitable causes. We will be building the sanitary facilities of the "Gustav Nachtigal" school in Kpalimé, setting up a mill in Kouma Konda, and reforesting the Souer de Orantes palm trees. In the long-term, we will also be supporting the AGERTO project in Kpalimé by establishing a computer class. For more information, please visit www.marathon.africa for
