It will be take place on 6 June in the city of São Tomé, organised by the Filhos de São Tomé e Príncipe Foundation.
The Real Madrid Foundation is supporting the first edition of the São Tomé Charity Marathon, organised by the Filhos de São Tomé y Príncipe Foundation, the social partner of the social sports school developed in this country. It will take place on 6 June 2021 in the city of São Tomé. For all those who want to be involved but are unable to attend, there is also the possibility of helping through a charity contribution, which will allow other local people without resources to take part and at the same time contribute directly to the charity project.
The aim of this initiative is the sustainability of the social sports school that caters for more than 250 children at risk of severe exclusion and the expansion of the number of children who can take part in sporting activities. Thanks to this, these youngsters will have a healthy leisure alternative, working on values that will keep them away from the usual dangers in this region such as alcohol, drugs or early pregnancies and thus have the motivation to achieve a future full of opportunities.
Methods and registration
The event will also promote sport in the country in collaboration with the Athletics Federation and the Ministry of Sport. In order to make it accessible to all levels, in addition to the 42km race, there will also be a 21km half marathon and a 10km race. Registration will end on 30 April 2021 or when the number of places is full.
