Trail Marathon – Mount Agou
February 16, 2020
Run the Mount Kilimanjaro of Togo, famously known as Mt. Agou. Get ready to have a great experience “climbing” the peak altitude of only 986 meters.where the mountain villages will be waiting for you. It is an undiscovered world in the heart of Togo.
This Trail-Marathon is part of the Africain Marathon Challenge, a series of charity events. The marathon starts in the area of the AGERTO project, crossing the market at Kpalimé-Zongo, running straight on dirt roads facing Mt. Agou.
There is another world will be waiting for you : The air gets fresher, the trails narrower. Crystal clear water from the mountain will refresh you in the middle of the beautiful tropical mountain forest. The villages are artwork carved in stone. Created over centuries.
Ascending downhill on narrow trails you will be passing giant trees and meeting friendly locals passing by. The marathon ends in Agou Nyogbo, a peaceful village at the foot of the mountain.
