About the Running Expedition

Love4Gambia’s running expedition, first run in 2011 by Erin Poirier and team, is a 424 km run across the West African nation of The Gambia in support of health education for Gambian youth.  The run starts in the rural community of Koina on The Gambia’s Eastern border with Senegal and ends in the capital city of Banjul by the Atlantic Ocean.

The Love4Gambia team, consisting of Canadian and Gambia runners,  will take on this annual challenge, running a minimum of 25km each day and facing high heat and extreme humidity along the way.
