Liberia “Takes the Lead” for Marathon 2014

first_imgThe city of Monrovia has been waiting in anticipation for the announcement that would signal the start of the annual Liberia Marathon.  The first ever Marathon in Liberia was held in August 2011 and this year in continuation of that tradition, the third edition of the Liberia Marathon will be held on August 31.  The Marathon is a 26.2-mile professional race that brings people together to run for various causes and ideals. A special 10-kilometer race for non-professional runners and participants in wheelchairs and those using crutches will also take place simultaneously.To kick off the event, an official Launching ceremony will take place on Saturday May 31, at the Monrovia City Hall, beginning at 9 a.m.  According to Eunice Dahn, Race Director of the 2014 Liberia Marathon, the Launch serves as the official start of registration for runners. The general public is invited to the Launch and everyone who registers on May 31st gets a 25% discount on the registration fees. However, registration will remain open until August 16th, 2014.  The Liberia Marathon is an open, inclusive and professional public event that helps transform how Liberians and others see the country. It also provides a catalyst for commercial and charitable activity and lays the foundation for a major competitive international event. This year’s Marathon is being organized by a strong team of committed and dedicated volunteers who are working tirelessly to plan and host this incredible event. They come from all walks of life and contribute their time, skills and resources to ensure that the Marathon is a safe and successful one.The Liberia Marathon Trust, a local non-profit organization, manages the Liberia Marathon and partners with the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Liberia Athletic Federation. It is supported by the Monrovia City Corporation, the Armed Forces of Liberia the Liberia National Police, as well as a host of other government ministries and agencies and the local media. A wide range of first class companies such as Lonestar Cell, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, RLJ Kendejah Resort and Villas, and AquaLife are sponsors this year’s marathon.  The slogan of this year’s marathon, “Taking the Lead” is all about setting personal and national goals and working towards achieving them.  The story of Liberia’s own journey toward sustainable peace, growth and development resonates well with values of that drive the marathon as a sport: integrity, endurance, commitment, preparation, positive thinking and a competitive spirit.Eunice Dahn, who happens to be the first ever Liberian Director of the Liberia Marathon, said the fact that Liberia is able to organize such a world-class race is an indication of its potential to achieve, to grow and to develop and as such, this year’s marathon is also about exploring and maximizing the potential of the country and its citizens.  Everyone, from all walks of life, regardless of challenges in physical ability, are encouraged to register and participate in the 2014 Liberia Marathon. “Taking the Lead is about the initiative required of us to move ourselves and our country forward,” says Eunice.  “And like any long journey or race, it begins with the first step.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
