MTN Uganda together with its partners Huawei, Stanbic bank, New Vision, Rwenzori and Spedag Interfreight have announced the 2019 edition of the MTN Kampala Marathon.
The MTN Kampala Marathon, now in its 16th year has been a mainstay on the Ugandan sports calendar giving participants “A GOOD REASON TO RUN” because apart from running for health and fitness, they get to contribute towards a community benefiting project. The proceeds from this year’s marathon will go towards improving maternal health services across the country.
The wheelchair race that’s previously happened a week before will now happen on the same day as the main race to foster inclusiveness for all.
Two years ago, we introduced the regional races as a way of expanding the running experience to the regions along with the positive impact it has in the hosting community. Last year, we had races in Mbale, Gulu and Mbarara. These races were very successful and this year we will be taking the regional races to Soroti, Arua and Masaka on Sunday 3rd, 10th and 17th November respectively leading up to the main event in Kampala on Sunday 24th November 2019. All regional runs will be 10km road races and the proceeds will be utilized to improve maternal health services in the same communities.
