Sponsors & Partners

We’re delighted to have had support from a number of sponsors and partners. Without their generosity and goodwill, the Etisalat Marathon of Afghanistan would not be possible.

We’re keen to work with other organisations as well, to extend the capacity of the event and expand its impact. If you’d like to discuss how that could work, please get in touch. Our email is on the Team page.
