Uganda: Uganda International Marathon 2018
May 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - June 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm UTC+2
This 7-day adventure in rural Uganda has received great reviews from many runners. Over the course of a week you get the opportunity to not only run, but also explore the local community and volunteer in a charity project. The first two days are for acclimatisation and the rest of the week builds up to the race on the penultimate day.
From the marathon website: “Explore an incredible community in East Africa. Visit, connect with, and support grass roots projects lead by local organisations and making a powerful impact on the community. Organise a sports day for local disadvantaged kids and run with Uganda in the biggest international race in East Africa.
In May 2018, come and take part in the Uganda Marathon! Described as “The best week of my life” by 1 in 5 participants, you can connect with Africa like no other trip in the world. Come and volunteer, meet the community, make life-long friends, camp under the African skies and run in the birthplace of running, in an adventure like no other!”
“I am struggling to find the words to describe how amazing the Uganda Marathon adventure was. Over the last week, I have met some wonderful people, volunteered at some incredible charity projects, had a life changing adventure and raced the race of a lifetime.”
– Leah, Uganda International Marathon runner
