To welcome a greener year, the Beirut Marathon is organizing the 20.23 CEDAR CHALLENGE where participants can run, swim, bike, hike and/or trail 20.23 KM in 6 of Lebanon’s 8 governorates: Akkar, Baalbek, Beirut, Beqaa, Keserwan, Mount Lebanon, North and South governorates.

The challenge will be open from May till October 2023 in Lebanon and internationally where anyone can participate and support this initiative.

The idea is to promote Sports Tourism in Lebanon through exploring its different regions while doing a fun and healthy activity .

Upon completion of the 6 activities, Beirut Marathon will partner with Reforestation Lebanon where we will hold a ceremony in the reserve, whereby we will plant 23 Cedar Trees in a small BMA-dedicated forest to all #PeaceRunners of Lebanon.

Every year, we will work towards growing this forest through such initiatives with the hope of turning our running community green.

Registration fee is 15 USD and you can register throughout the 6 months period.

Registration opens on 10th of April 2023.

Every participant is entitled to a special medal, a gold map of Lebanon with an engraved cedar, symbolizing the planting of the trees in Lebanese soil.
