The Marathon of Afghanistan

Our website is largely paused, while we monitor developments in Afghanistan. At this point we unfortunately see no way to stage an inclusive event in 2022.

But please watch out for virtual events and other activities to keep the spirit of the Marathon of Afghanistan alive, and to support Afghan athletes and organisers.

You can sign up for our newsletter below.

The Marathon of Afghanistan was the first international marathon to take place in the country in 2015. The event was always open to women and men, international and Afghan, people from all ethnic groups and provinces.
