About the event:
3rd Trail-Marathon du Mt. Agou, Kpalimé, Togo
Dimanche 6 November 2022 - Sunday, 6th November 2022

Run the Mount Kilimanjaro of Togo, called Mt. Agou. You will not step into snow but have a great experience "climbing" the peak altitude of only 986 meters. My favorite mountain villages are waiting for you. It is an undiscovered world in the heart of Togo. This Trail-Marathon is part of the Africain Marathon Challenge, a series of charity events. We will start in the area of the AGERTO project (see AMC-Charity topic), crossing the market at Kpalimé-Zongo, running straight on dirt roads facing Mt. Agou. Running around the mountain almost before we gain altitude from KM 27 on. There is another world waiting for us: The air gets fresher, the trails narrower. Crystal clear water from the mountain will refresh you in the middle of the beautiful tropical mountain forest.The villages are artwork carved in stone. Created over centuries. As guests we'll become part of their magic for a short but intense period of time. Maybe you'll like to stay infinitely writing a novel here like I wish every time being around. But we are on the run: Downhill on narrow trails passing solitary tree giants meeting friendly local people passing by. The marathon ends in Agou Nyogbo, a peaceful village at the foot of the mountain. You will be proud and keep on smiling while trying to understand that this day will change your life...

Welcome to the 6th edition of the Trail-Marathon in the Atacora mountain chain. This is the masterpiece of the African Marathon Challenge. We start with a breakfast in the area of the NGO AGERTO (Association Germano-Togolaise) located in the Yoruba-founding Kpalimé. Running slightly uphill on paved roads, crossing the border to Ghana after 12 kilometres. On our butterfly trails we will visit the friendly mountain villages before reaching 2 waterfalls. You get a free massage there... The finish line awaits you with local food and traditional music in Kuma Konda, one of this lovely villages. Charity-Background: We build the sanitary facilities of the "Gustav Nachtigal"-School in Kpalimé. We are building a mill in Kouma Konda and reforest the palm trees of the Souer de Orantes. Longterm we support the AGERTO project in Kpalimé by founding a computer class.

This event will be the first day of the double event: "Running the Trails of Togo: A weekend in runners paradise". Please visit www.marathon.africa for details and the interactive maps.
