Many known long distance athletes participate. People of all ages numbering 30,000 or more participate in this great international event, counting it as a great joy and privilege to run with world class athletes (Ethiopians & Kenyans).
Besides the joy of running, people have a lot of fun in this event. One can see people with different skills showing their abilities, telling jokes, singing songs and all manner of funny things. The other nice thing about this event is that everyone receives a medal for his/her participation, but to do so, they have to finish the race. Please contact us for detailed information
