The Organizing Committee of the Tripoli Marathon is preparing for the second version of the long-distance running race, which was initiated on Facebook pages last year and later became a special sporting event.

The second marathon is expected to host up to 2000 participants compared with the previous year with 450 competitors only.

 In a press statement, member of the Organizing Committee, Adel Al Mashout, said that the preparations are still at its civil and community level, calling for more support for this event to reach the goal of breaking the record of the highest participation in similar events. He added that the race date will be on November 25.
