The Pyramids Half Marathon takes place on February 22, 2020, inviting runners from around the world to run at the most iconic of locations: the Great Pyramids of Giza. Egypt’s signature running event features the 21K in addition to the 10K and 6K distances, meaning anyone can take part and run through 5,000 years of history.
The Giza Plateau is the home of the Great Pyramids of Giza, world-renowned landmarks and among the best-preserved structures remaining from Pharaonic times. The Pyramids Complex comprises the three main pyramids: Khufu, Kafre, and Menkaure. The Great Sphinx lies on the east side of the complex and is attributed to Pharaoh Kafre.
The Pyramids Half Marathon takes you up close and personal to the last remaining Ancient Wonder of the World. Each distance features a one-lap route that starts and finishes at the Pyramids.
