The TriFactory is proud to welcome runners to the Pyramids Half Marathon, its flagship running event at the Great Pyramids of Giza. The event takes place on Saturday, February 22nd, 2020, and features three exciting distances: 21K, 10K, and 6K. The Pyramids Half Marathon will feature brand new race courses, building on the success of the inaugural event in 2019, that will see athletes from all over the world running right through the heart of the Pyramids.
As a major sports event in the heart of the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, the Pyramids Half Marathon has great potential to boost tourism and showcase Egypt’s historic beauty to the world. Last year’s event brought together 3600 runners representing 77 different nationalities, and The TriFactory is looking forward to welcoming even more runners to the 2020 edition of the event.
The Pyramids Half Marathon boasts 100% paved roads which are entirely pedestrianised during the course of the race, a major advantage for runners that is in line with international standards. All three races are also timed using the MyLaps timing system, the same technology deployed at the Olympic Games, further cementing the Pyramids Half Marathon’s pedigree as an international calibre road running race. The event proudly falls under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth & Sport and the Ministry of Antiquities, and is supervised by the Egyptian Athletics Federation.
The three days preceding the event will feature an Official Event Expo at the Greek Campus in Downtown Cairo, where all athletes will be able to collect their race kits. The Expo will also feature race briefings, speeches by public figures,official race merchandise, and more.
