Hundreds of runners are competing for places on the Brufut marathon runners list to qualify for a ticket to run at the UK marathon this year.

The Brufut marathon, taking place on Saturday, provides an air ticket sponsored by Brussels Airlines to the UK where BMA partners with Friends of The Gambian Association (FOTGA) to register them for a UK marathon.

This year they partnered with local real estate agent Smart Spaces, which provides logistics for the January 18th event.

The race has three major categories: the 21K, which starts from Stink Corner to Brufut via Westfield, Traffic light and Turntable; the 10KM starts at Palma Rima Hotel to Brufut, and the 5km starts at Turntable.

Registration closes at starting point of the event on Saturday.

The run is open to all ages as long as one is fit. Call 9905966, 9918563, or 3187556 for more info.
