The Great Gambia Run 2018

The Great Gambia Run (Bajana Int. Marathon) is organise by The Gambia Volunteers Trust (GVT). It’s a race that combines charity, running and travel to The Gambia!

Those on holidays in The Gambia during the period are welcome to join the race. There is something for everyone, with 5km, 10km and 42km options!

The race is to raise money for The Gambia Volunteers, a development charity organisation that works to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of skilled volunteers.

Runners will have the opportunity to not only take part in an amazing run, but to raise money for a great cause and to visit the most attractive attractions Gambia has to offer. It is the perfect place for runners to see the hinterland of The Gambia and run past villages, bush and hilly slopes.

The race takes place every year on Easter Sunday. 2017 saw over 2000 people taking part, from all over the world!

The race is timed and officiated by The Gambia Athletic Association.
