Uganda Marathon & Gorilla Experience

If you’re looking for a PB then find another race! The Uganda marathon will take you up and down hills, through beautiful rolling terrain and some of Uganda’s most stunning scenery. The race starts and finishes in Masaka, a large town in the Central Region of Uganda, west of Lake Victoria. Throughout the entire course you’ll be cheered on by the locals of the community who are super excited to host this event. More than 5000 people descend from all over to run in this event, bringing the trademark African atmosphere: joking, laughing, dancing, singing, high-fiving – we guarantee you’ve never experienced a run like this before!

Uganda is home to over half of the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas. These gentle giants are an endangered species, with less than 700 remaining in the wild. You will trek into Bwindi Impenetrable forest to come face to face with man’s closest relative for a day that you will remember for the rest of your life! We can also combine this incredible day with any of the many other national parks in reserves in Uganda, where you could see the Big 5, chimpanzees and other amazing fauna and flora.

We can cater to your specific individual needs when it comes to your Uganda Marathon and Safari, customising the length and order of your trip any way you prefer it. Or, you can allow us to suggest the best trip for you. Whichever option you choose, you can be assured of an amazing running and wildlife safari in the “Pearl of Africa”!

The next Uganda Marathon is scheduled for 4 June 2022.
