Cairo Runners Half Marathon is coming to Gouna
Everything you need to know about the Cairo Runners El Gouna Half Marathon!
Get your running apps and shoes ready… The Cairo Runners Half Marathon is set to grace El Gouna once again!
The first ever half Marathon in El Gouna was held in February 2017. Its debut saw over fifteen hundred runners turn up from all over Egypt and further afield. Last year’s big event was held in the New Marina Piazza, with a fully-fledged Koshari Party the night before and an awards ceremony and live music after party afterward! It saw major records broken and left a massive hole in the 2018 Calendar to return.
Now Orascom management and Cairo Runners have FINALLY set the date back into the 2018 programme for October, 12th and El Gouna residents are already excited and gearing up their training routines. Their Facebook and Instagram accounts encourage decent training schedules to get yourself fighting fit and ready for the big day.
This year is set to change the routine a little; being a sunset based race instead of early morning, you also have the choice of joining a 2km fun run, a 10km stretch or the full 21km stretch. Cairo Runners have confirmed that the route has changed from the previous year, with the start and finish line taking place at G-Space on the main Gouna road. Travel all the sites and sounds of Gouna in a completely different way!
