Every year on June 9, running and cross-country enthusiasts from across the globe come together to take part in the Kiln Sierra Leone Marathon. Taking place in the stunning Makeni countryside, the marathon is held to raise money for the worthy Street Child of Sierra Leone charity. Potential runners can choose to embark on a full, half, or three-mile route, and the proceeds of the entry fees go to this great organization. This is wonderful way to meet new people, see the breathtaking Sierra Leone countryside, and contribute to a good cause. Travelers who are interested in the organization can also visit some of the Street Child projects during their stay.
