El Gouna Half Marathon

The Trifactory’s El Gouna Half Marathon returns to the Red Sea’s premier tourist resort on November 11, 2022. The new edition will invite runners from all over Egypt and major cities in Europe to participate and compete in a new racecourse with improved routes and challenges.

New Race Routes For 2022

El Gouna Half Marathon is an annual running event inviting amateur runners all over Egypt and other parts of Europe to compete in one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Considering the marathon’s successes from 2019 to 2021, the Trifactory will make the event bigger and better than ever. The 2022 edition features 5K, 10K, and 21K routes that follow similar paths.

On top of that, El Gouna Half Marathon 2022 will again use the premium racecourse on the same scenic roads of the tourist resort. The course is nearly flat, with minimal elevations to provide bridges and challenges that participants will cross during the event.

Timing and Location

The half marathon will once again take place in the heart of the resort town of El Gouna, the Red Sea’s premier tourist destination. The venue will provide runners with outstanding background scenery, courtesy of El Gouna’s 10 kilometers of coastline and 20 islands surrounded by lagoons.

The location is 20 kilometers north of Hurghada. Participants who are not local residents can reach El Gouna via car or internal flight. For those who will come from major cities abroad, there are flights that directly connect to Hurghada International Airport. Alternatively, participants can also look for transportation services that directly travel to El Gouna, such as Go Bus.

El Gouna Half Marathon 2022 will take place on November 11. But aside from the actual race, participants must also attend the briefing and preparation day before race day.

Registration Information

The Trifactory has yet to open the registration for El Gouna Half Marathon 2022 as details for the start line zone, finish line zone, and full course maps need to be finalized first. In the meantime, interested participants can wait for further announcements on the event’s official website.
