About the Madinaty Half Marathon:
The Madinaty Half Marathon was first organised by The TriFactory in spring of 2021, in partnership with Talaat Moustafa Group. The inaugural event featured 1,300 runners from across Egypt taking part in three different races, 5K, 10K, & 21K. This year, the same three distances will be organised, once more offering runners a professional-standard race experience, including automatic timing of every runner, fully closed-off roads reserved for runners only, and special race medals at the finish line.
In addition to the fantastic destination and fast & flat race course, The TriFactory will be operating the MYLAPS timing system, which automatically times every single runner in the race. This is the same system that is used at the Olympic Games. Like all of The TriFactory's major sports events, Madinaty Half Marathon will fall under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth & Sports and the supervision of the Egyptian Athletics Federation, ensuring that it is organised to international standards.
The Madinaty Half Marathon will take runners on a world-class running course, offering participants the choice of three competitive running races (5K, 10K, & 21K), a 3K Fun Run, and the brand new 10K Skate Race.
Madinaty is a city of international standards right here in Egypt. It is a fully-integrated and modern city whose design focuses on providing all present and future requirements of its inhabitants and visitors.
Madinaty is not simply about residential villas and apartment buildings; it is about providing a modern lifestyle for its residents where they can find everything they can possibly need, including vast green areas, golf courses, educational institutions, sports and social clubs, hospitals, business centers, and entertainment facilities. Madinaty has a strong focus on sports for its residents, which coupled with the above, makes it an amazing destination for a world-class half marathon
As the host of this sports event, Madinaty's world-class landscape and urban planning will be a key feature of the race experience. With a residential population exceeding 300,000 people, the turnout for the Madinaty Half Marathon is expected to be in the thousands, and Madinaty's broad avenues and tree-lined streets will easily be able to accommodate them all.
Due to its private nature and strong on-site security & facility management capabilities, Madinaty is able to close down roads and dedicate them specifically for runners on the day of the event, offering an experience exactly like top marathons organised across the world.
