This true adventure involves exploration and integration with far off communities.

By participating in The Uganda Marathon you'll not only explore an African community, but meet them, live with them, help them and finally, run with them.

The Uganda International Marathon has become a part of the fabric of a Ugandan district, a point of local pride and an event that is looked forward to all year-round. You will be as much a part of the community as the shopkeepers, taxi drivers and street sweepers, and every year, each participant leaves an impact that can be seen for decades to come.

Chose from a full or half marathon and enjoy 7 days on the Equator.

If you want to make a real difference to yourself and others this year, we've got a running bib with your name on.

Deposit is only £99 and by running for Sustain For Life you will get £50 off your trip cost.

Had the most amazing week! A truly incredible experience like no other! Fantastic team well organised and run. About so much more than the race, although the marathon is brilliant. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting an adventure and to experience the beauty of Uganda!

An unbelievable experience – no words will do this post justice. Life changing to say the least. Thank you to everyone who donated and supported us through the run and adventure!”
