Discard tour guides and discover the city with your fellow runners on Sunday the 31st of January, 2021.
The event will take you back in time as you run the Cradle of the Yorubas and enjoy the rich sights and sounds of the ancient city.
Leading western historians have come to accept after much disbelief and research that these bronze artifacts discovered in Yorubaland in 1939 were indeed made by the Yorubas of the 11th-14th Century using lost wax technology, a total of 19 were discovered!
This large size statue of one of the crowned bronze heads sits in the middle of the town. It is a good place to pull out your cameras and snap away !
The Final Finisher of IHM 2019 escorted and celebrated by the OAU Chapter of Man O War ably led by Commandant Modupe Bello. We empower every Runner from Start to Finish!

Of the 3 crowned heads, one is housed in the British Museum, and another one in the National Museum, Ife. The third bronze head is “lost”! Please mentally note the location of the Museum as you run and make a plan to go see this historic Bronze Head, which is one of many exciting exhibits!
We are still at war against the Coronavirus.
Our healthcare workers are at the battle frontline.
Some of them have not gone home in weeks
It is time to support them by staying at home so they too can go home once the war is over.
But staying home does not mean staying inactive.
Ile- Ife Heritage Marathon is here to help us stay active, so lace up your shoes and run a 10km distance in your compound.
1) No street running
2) No treadmill running
3) Share a 1 minute video clip of yourself running, your time and a finish line photo of yourself on any or all of your social media handle and tag ile_ife_heritage_marathon for a chance to be included in a draw.
4) You could also send the video clip of yourself running, your time and a finish line photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org
