The TriFactory is incredibly proud to announce the second edition of Aswan42 – the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation Marathon, taking place on February 2nd, 2018. The running event, organized in collaboration with the Foundation, will see 100% of proceeds from tickets being donated to the Aswan Heart Centre, the specialized hospital that Professor Magdi Yacoub heads and which provides free heart surgeries for hundreds of children.
Aswan42 provides runners with an amazing running experience, all along the banks of the River Nile. Runners can choose from the full marathon, half-marathon (21km), and the 10K race distances, while children 10 and under will be able to participate in a 1K race.
Professor Magdi Yacoub is expected to attend the marathon himself, and has taken a significant interest in the event, as running races are famous for their association with cardiovascular health. Furthermore, Aswan42 will be an opportunity to showcase the beautiful city of Aswan to the world, with runners from more than a dozen nationalities already signed up.
