Join Ghanaians, the people generally described as amongst the friendliest in the world, as we take bold steps to improve our fitness and lifestyle while supporting local charities.
Taking advantage of the numerous beaches along the Accra-Tema Beach Road, the Accra International Marathon (AIM) is a Beach-to-Beach running event that takes participants through the key Accra communities of Teshie, Nungua, Sakumono and Ghana’s major harbor city, Tema, and ends at the famed Laboma Beach, site of the first successful African edition of the Afro Nation Festival.
With the harbor expansion works that have been ongoing for the last several years, AIMers will get great glimpses of Accra’s scenic ocean views.
With an enduring theme of AIMing to Care, participants are encouraged and supported to raise funds for a local worthy cause of their choice. In addition to the 42-kilometer full marathon distance, there are also a 21-kilometer, 10-kilometer, and 5-kilometer distances.
In addition to fresh, sweet coconuts and other refreshments, participants are usually treated to free massages from trained physio- and massage therapists at the finish line venue.
