Marathon Cairo, a full 42.2 KM marathon and the biggest sports event in the capital of Egypt, will welcome 2023 with its return. The event looks at its 9th edition in February 2020, which will once again be organized by MC Sports.
Run Cairo, Breathe History
Marathon Cairo has been an annual sports event in the city since 2015. The success of its debut led to more sponsors, organizers, and participants. Now, for its 9th edition, MC Sports is inviting everyone—locals and foreign nationals—to take part in another challenging full marathon that can diversify their professional or amateur portfolio. Participants can compete in a 42.2 KM race held across Cairo or opt for other minor races happening the same day:
- 21 KM Half Marathon
- 8 KM Marathon
- Fun Run
