The Accra Millenium Marathon is expected to attract thousands of runners both locally and internationally including Africa’s finest ever runner, Haile Gebreselassie.
The 2015 Accra Millenium Marathon races:
- 5km run for non-professional athletes
- 21km (Half-Marathon) run for professional athletes who will be vying for the ultimate trophy.
The half marathon will start from the Independence Square in Accra and pass through some of Accra’s tourist’s monuments, running along the Atlantic Ocean on the Labadi beach road, across the Trade Fair and through some lovely streets of Accra, via the National theatre, Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and back to the finish line at the Independence Square.
