The Source of the Nile Trail Running Challenge is a prestigious race with the most stunning and scenic trail you will probably ever run in your life! Set at the source of the Nile in Jinja, Uganda, the different running trails will not only take you along the banks of the great River Nile but upon rocky paths past the rapids and up to the scenic hills overlooking lake Victoria and down through villages and banana plantations. The inaugural race is proudly organized by Activate Uganda on the 25th of September 2016. For more information check out www.sourceoftheniletrailrunchallenge.com
Come check out the 4th Annual Mihingo Conservation Foundation – Mihingo Marathon scheduled for Saturday 4th June 2016, near Lake Mburo National Park.
This spectacular event will have both running and mountain biking races for both individuals and teams. You cannot miss this opportunity to run along with the zebras!
All funds raised will be used by MCF to reduce the human-wildlife conflict around Lake Mburo and link communities to the benefits of living alongside wildlife. Last year MCF compensated 153 livestock (122 cows and 31 goats) killed or injured by leopard and hyena.
So come and run for conservation and see exactly what the MCF is working to protect during your race.
