This race is both first-timer friendly and ideal for marathoners in training. We have been working vigorously since December to prepare runners for this day. We have invested a significant amount of time and energy into building the stepping-stones for a running culture in Cairo, and continually strive to highlight the importance of fitness and wellbeing.
