Get involved

There are various ways to be part of the Marathon of Afghanistan, and they don’t all mean running 42.2k.

Join us! A limited number of international runners are normally able to join each year. Their fees, along with help from our sponsors, enable local runners to participate for free. Contact Untamed Borders for details or click the button below.

Virtual! We intend to hold a virtual run or other challenge every summer, suitable for people to take part and have a connection to the event even if they don’t leave their home.

Donate! Through our partners at the Afghan Sports Trust, you can help provide the resources for the marathon to become bigger and better, and more inclusive. The AST is a new charity which helps to provide opportunity through sport in Afghanistan and we’re very grateful for their help in providing this mechanism.

Social! You can also follow us and show support on social media, by clicking the logos below or searching for @marathonofafghanistan. We know it’s not easy for everyone to travel to physically take part in the event, but people are extremely welcome to become part of the wider MoA community, and it’s inspiring for local athletes to know that they have the good wishes of people in other countries.
