A race like no other. Challenge yourself this summer and enter this stunning equatorial marathon through the heart of Uganda.

Running in East Africa is like playing football at Wembley, cricket at Lords, or Quidditch at Hogwarts. This is the home of distance running, this is the silhouette jogging across the African sun, this is the dust rising in the wake of a group of lightning quick locals - and this is your chance to be a part of run a race like no other.

Watch the video trailer from #UGM2016. Watch 150 runners come to Masaka for their adventure and run the race of a lifetime!

The Uganda Marathon is not just a race, but a 7 day immersive cultural adventure on the Equator. Described as “The best week of my life” by 1 out of 5 #UGM2016 participants, this unique event brings people from around the world to rural Uganda to work with local projects, stage a sports day and a football tournament, take part in a celebration of Ugandan culture, a festival, a party, performance, music, art and at the end of it all: a 10k, half or full marathon.

The cost for the whole week is inclusive of all food, transport, activities, entertainment and the race itself. It’s a 7 day adventure that includes everything Uganda has to offer, and a brilliant introduction to the culture and international development.
