BEACH EXTENSION

The Sierra Leone Marathon package covers the five days you’ll spend with the team in Makeni. But a visit to Sierra Leone just isn’t complete without a trip to its world-famous beaches. We strongly recommend runners extend their stay for one or two nights and join us at Tokeh beach for a celebratory beach barbecue (on us!). This is an opportunity to reflect on your experience and share a few drinks with new friends. We recommend booking the beach extension early so as to avoid disappointment – spaces are limited and rooms go fast!

STANDARD ACCOMMODATION: £80 PER NIGHT- SOLD OUT

Please contact slmarathon@street-child.org if you missed out on standard accommodation but are still interested in a beach extension.

A simple, yet beautiful resort overlooking the beach, with private double rooms, air conditioning. Breakfast is included.

PREMIUM ACCOMMODATION: £130 PER NIGHT

A premium beach resort with fantastic facilities, swimming pool, restaurant and bar featuring fresh local and international cuisine. Breakfast is included.
