The Saqqara Pyramid Race
The Trifactory is expanding its #RaceThroughHistory series in Egypt! The Saqqara Pyramid Race, the new addition to the series, will debut on February 17, 2023 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 two timed and one-lap distances: 5K and 10K.
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 takes place on February 17, 2023 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.
