RACE DATE: Sunday, May 19th, 2024
The worldwide running race One Run will take place at the Great Pyramids of Giza on Sunday, May 19th, at 5:00 pm, including 1K, 5K, 10K, & 21K races. Runners will be able to experience a unique running race at sunset at the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World!


The Giza Plateau is the home of the Great Pyramids of Giza, world-renowned landmarks and among the best preserved structures remaining from Pharaonic times. The Pyramids Complex comprises the three main pyramids: Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure. The Great Sphinx lies on the east side of the complex and is attributed to Pharaoh Khafre. Each of the three structures has its own surrounding buildings which include smaller pyramids for the Pharaohs' wives and families, as well as temples and other facilities. The Great Pyramid of Khufu is the largest and last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, although all three pyramids are often given that designation as a group. 


100% authentic. 100% amazing. One Run takes you up close and personal to the last remaining Ancient Wonder of the World, offering runners the opportunity to choose from four fantastic distances: 1K, 5K, 10K, & 21K. The race course features several rolling hills and inclinations, particularly for the half marathon runners.

Parking Areas:

Kindly note that you will have to park by the entrance gate and walk for 10 minutes to reach the Start Line Zone.

Runners can be dropped off by their friends/family, taxi, Uber, driver, or any other vehicle they choose. We encourage runners to get dropped off at the pedestrian gate.  This will expedite their entry process and allow them to walk straight to the Start Line Zone.

For those runners coming with their private vehicles, a car pass must be purchased and passengers inside the vehicle must be wearing an access bracelet, whether as runners or spectators.
