Run with Midnight Runners
and race the
Mogadishu Marathon
Not everyone can run when they want, where they want. Support Somali runners by virtually running a Mogadishu Marathon race from wherever you are on March the 6th.

Samia Yusuf
Memorial Run

The Mogadishu Marathon honors Samia Yusuf Omar, an Olympic runner from Somalia, who drowned attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea in 2012.

Although she met the same fate as many refugees around the world, her story is that of an incredibly strong and resistant female runner, fighting the status quo, and dreaming of the freedom to run.
