Join us for the biggest UK event of the UGM calendar!
In two years, The Uganda International Marathon has become a part of the fabric of a Ugandan district, a point of local pride and an event that is looked forward to all year-round. Participants are as much a part of the community as the shopkeepers, taxi drivers and street sweepers, and every year, each participant leaves an impact that can be seen for decades to come.
On the 26th of January 2017, we are officially launching The Uganda Marathon #UGM2017 with our big annual fundraiser!
This is an amazing evening that celebrates Uganda, Masaka, running and the incredible work that has been carried out thanks to previous UGM runners, our community who have fundraised.
We're going to have a few talks from runners who have run The Marathon. A live update from Uganda about the projects and the impact that we are having out there and a big announcement about how how UGM2017 could be the best week of your life.
This event should absolutely go in your diary if:
- You are at all interested in taking part in the Uganda Marathon and want to know more
- You love Africa, Uganda or charity and want to hear some amazing stories about how 180 people a year are impacting a community through running.
- You are one of our wonderful UGM ex-runners and want to catch up with friends made from the week.
- You are one of our amazing UGM friends.
We are hosting this event with WeWork, at Moorgate. The WeWork community are a group of creative, entrepreneurial start-ups who are changing the world every day. We are really excited to be hosting this event at their Moorgate location, a shared coworking space that cultivates creativity.
Can't wait to see you there.
