After three years of hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cairo Half Marathon finally returns this May. As a comeback, the half marathon will be bigger and better and will take you all back to where it all started, Heliopolis.

After the hiatus, the event returns with three official race categories, 21KM, 10KM, 5KM, family run, and different able run. The fun run for families and group attendees is open to all ages.
