About The Madinaty Half Marathon:

The Madinaty Half Marathon is the latest running race to be organised by The TriFactory, in partnership with Talaat Moustafa Group. Taking place at Madinaty on FRIDAY, JUNE 4th, the event will feature 5K, 10K, and 21K races organised to professional standards, including automatic timing of every runner, fully closed-off roads reserved for runners only, and special race medals at the finish line. 

 

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 will be 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. 

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 distances to choose from. See you on FRIDAY, JUNE 4th!
