Take part in the 2019 Uganda Marathon (26th May – 2nd June) with Uganda Cancer Trust UK

The Uganda Marathon is not just a race, but a 7 day immersive cultural adventure on the Equator. Described as “The best week of my life” by 1 out of 5 participants, it’s a unique event that brings people from around the world to rural Uganda to work with local projects, stage a sports day for local disadvantaged children, take part in a festival of Ugandan culture and at the end of it all, run a 10K, half or full marathon.

I am struggling to find the words to describe how amazing
the Uganda Marathon adventure was. Over the last week, I have met some wonderful people, volunteered at some incredible charity projects, had a life changing adventure and raced the race of a lifetime.

Andy Bownds of the organising team for the marathon says:

The event as a whole was even better than we originally thought. We had 1,000 people take part, 100 of which were international runners. The Uganda Marathon is already the second largest fundraising event in the whole of Uganda raising funds for organisations throughout Uganda and across the world.
All this has meant it didn’t take us long to agree that we are definitely are putting the event on next year. It will be on the 5.06.15. You can already register on the website-
Thanks again for your support and cant wait to work with you again next year!
At Uganda Cancer Trust UK we would love to have runners taking part in the Marathon next year. If you or anyone you know is interested please do get in touch at
