25 Friday

The Saqqara Pyramid Race

Fri, February 25, 2022
Saqqara, Giza


The Trifactory is expanding its #RaceThroughHistory series in Egypt! The Saqqara Pyramid Race, the new addition to the series, will debut on February 25 and feature two main distances at one of the most popular historical sites in the country.

Race Through History in Saqqara

The TriFactory will organize the Saqqara Pyramid Race to diversify its annual Race Through History series. The new event begins and ends at the actual Saqqara Pyramid and features the timed 5K distance and the short, untimed 1K Kids Race for kids ages 5-8 and their families.

The Saqqara Pyramid Race marks the first time The Trifactory is organizing a pyramid-based event at a local destination other than the Great Pyramids of Giza. And it’s just as scenic and historic as the Great Pyramids everyone has come to love. The Saqqara Pyramid carries 5,000 years of Egyptian history.

Timing and Location

The Saqqara Pyramid Race opens on February 25 in Saqqara, an Egyptian village in Giza Governorate that houses the ancient burial grounds of Egypt. Like the previous Race Through History events, The Trifactory will once again set aside dates before and after the actual event to host expositions, ceremonies, and preparations.
