Uganda International Marathon 2016
The Uganda International Marathon is a 6 day challenge on the Equator culminating in A Race Like No Other. Participants from all round the world join 3,000 runners from Uganda to take on a 10k, half or full Marathon distance through a beautiful but tough rural course.
In May 2015, the inaugural Marathon took place. The event raised 372,000,000 Ugandan shillings for charity, making it the second largest fundraising event in Ugandan history. In 2016 the Marathon is set to be the biggest ever!
The money raised goes towards projects in the town of Masaka that hosts the marathon - supporting local community development projects. Runners spend time with these projects, and see the impact and difference their participation has made on the lives of people in Uganda. After the marathon, there are monthly project visits from our staff, progress reports, financial statements and photo and video updates. Every pound donated will directly help the people of Uganda
