42.2 KM Marathon

Are you ready for the ultimate challenge? This 42.2km marathon for men, women and wheelchair athletes is not just a race, it’s a test of endurance, strength and spirit. Join us as we cheer on our amazing runners as they race through the streets and communities of Accra in this epic race.

The Black Star Marathon is more than just a race, it’s a movement. The Black Star Marathon is dedicated to developing endurance sports in Ghana and all over the world by creating opportunities for athletes of all abilities.

We are proud to support and promote paralympic sports in Ghana as well, and we believe that everyone deserves a chance to pursue their dreams. That’s why we have included wheelchair races as part of the Black Star Marathon racing series since our first event in 2012 (which was ran as Runathon Ghana).

We have sponsored deserving winners of our races to participate in prestigious international wheelchair races, such as the OCC Wheelchair marathon in South Africa. Our champions have represented Ghana with honor and excellence at international races, and we are inspired by their courage and determination.

We invite you to be part of this amazing event and support our runners as they tackle the 42.2km marathon. Whether you are a runner, a volunteer, a sponsor or a spectator, you can make a difference and help us grow the sport of running.
