The challenge will take place on 6 June 2021 in the city of Santo Tomé.
Real Madrid ambassador Álvaro Arbeloa, virtually accompanied by Miguel Martín, founder of the Fundación Filhos de Santo Tomé y Príncipe, have presented the first edition of the Santo Tomé charity marathon. Organised by the Fundación Filhos de Santo Tomé y Príncipe in collaboration with the Real Madrid Foundation, it will take place on 6 June 2021 in the city of Santo Tomé, in the gulf of Guinea.

Arbeloa highlighted the importance of the challenge following the various charity races organised by the Real Madrid Foundation. The ambassador explained: "Working with kids is always a long-haul race, just like a marathon. It's a tough challenge, but if you think about the lives of those children, it suddenly doesn't seem so big". Meanwhile, Miguel Martín underlined: “The more people who run, the more kids will be able to play. We need everyone's collaboration and support to help this project grow and continue improving the quality of life for the children of Santo Tomé y Príncipe”.
 
The Fundación Filhos de Santo Tomé y Príncipe and the Real Madrid Foundation currently run a social sports project which benefits more than 250 boys and girls at risk of severe social exclusion.
