Running the Rift is much more than just a race. It is a life-changing adventure deep into rural Africa where runners from around the world join East-Africans and local Ugandans on the brutal trails of the Great Rift Valley. Join us from the 19th to the 25th of November 2019. Full board places start from £625.
Running the Rift Marathon (full, half, and 10km) is a challenging trail run through spectacular scenery where the Rift Valley meets the Congo Basin and Rwenzori Mountains. Funds raised go to the Kyaninga Child Development Centre to support disabled children and their families.
Just north of the equator and at 1600m, the races are hilly, hot and are as beautiful as they are brutal. Both courses are marked and marshalled, water stations, electrolytes and four teams of medics are present.
The races are part of a week-long event based at the luxury safari lodge, Kyaninga Lodge. Join us for the whole event and experience a unique and very special trip in a beautiful and unexplored part of the world, or come along for the race only. See the website for more info.
