Coming back for its 9th edition on the 20th of May 2022, Cairo Marathon’s annual run once again takes place under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Setting itself apart from any other marathon event, Cairo Marathon prides itself on upholding a meaningful platform and is driven by a concerted effort to bring focus onto matters that hold critical importance to the community.
Embracing an ethos of cooperation and positive change, this year’s cause sets out to increase public awareness of Mental Health and Wellness under the hashtag #RunWithIt.
To be attended by leading minds in their field in an uplifting, positive atmosphere of togetherness, promoting self-love, self-care and self-acceptance, this special event is a call out to the community to join together and show their support for breaking the stigma surrounding mental health issues in the country by participating in a fun-filled day of competition and entertainment.
The marathon organization is a collaboration between iconic Cairo Runners, the group that has inspired everyday Cairenes to don their running shoes and hit the road, and ievents, Egypt’s leading event management company.
On the day itself, the streets of Heliopolis will play host to over 3,500 runners tackling runs across several categories, from relatively easy 2 km courses, right up to the daunting 21 km Half Marathon, which should be a test to anyone’s stamina.
This is your chance to show your support; for mental health, wellness, the community and the spirit of healthy competition.
