We are delighted to announce that Facing Africa has taken a major sponsorship role of the Trans Atlas Marathon, an amazing , small and special Ultra running event in the high Atlas mountains of Morocco.

FA is offering to any runners who raise money for the charity* to reimburse their entrance fees for the race.
Click here to find out more about the Trans Atlas Marathon and please forward to any ultra running friends you may have as this is an excellent opportunity for them to run for free in one of the most spectacular footraces on Earth whilst generating funds for Facing Africa and the patients who so desperately require facial reconstructive surgery as a result of the flesh eating disease called “Noma” .

* The minimum amount of sponsorship required to be raised for Facing Africa to refund your entry fee to TAM is £3,000 (excluding any Gift Aid)
