December 2021


5K Race

10K Race

21K Half Marathon


The Pyramids Half Marathon takes place in December, 2021, inviting runners from around the world to run at the most iconic of locations: the Great Pyramids of Giza. Egypt’s signature running event features the 21K in addition to the 10K and 6K distances, meaning anyone can take part and run through 5000 years of history.


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, Kafre, and Menkaure. The Great Sphinx lies on the east side of the complex and is attributed to Pharaoh Kafre. Each of the three structures has its own surrounding buildings which include smaller pyramids for the Pharaoh’s wives and family, as well as temples and other facilities.

The Great Pyramid of Khufu is the largest and is officially the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, although all three pyramids are often given that designation as a group. 


100% authentic. 100% amazing. The Pyramids Half Marathon takes you up close and personal to the last remaining Ancient Wonder of the World. The race course features several rolling hills and inclinations, particularly for the half marathon runners.


Runners will be able to pick up their race packs at the Official Pyramids Half Marathon Expo on the three days preceding the Pyramids Half Marathon.

The Pyramids Half Marathon is open to all runners, regardless of age or ability. There is no entrance criteria or qualification necessary for registration. The minimum age for the 5K race is 8 years, for the 10K it is 12 years, and for the 21k distance it is 14 years old. Age is calculated based on year of birth.

The Pyramids Half Marathon will be organised in accordance with international standards and the rules and regulations set forth by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), the Egyptian Athletics Federation, and the Race Organiser. Doping controls will be regulated by the relevant authorities and the Race Organiser reserves the right to request random drug testing of any athlete at the event.


As with many major races around the world, the Pyramids Half Marathon will adopt a strict cut-off time in order to maintain the level of competition for each distance and due to the inability to block off the roads indefinitely while runners complete their race. There is one cut-off time for all the races, which will be at 10:00 am. This allows 21K runners 3 hours to complete the half marathon distance. 


Every Pyramids Half Marathon participant (6K, 10K, & 21K), receives a finisher’s medal upon completion of their race. Rankings will be organised in overall and age group categories. Overall winners (top three males and top three females for each distance) will receive special prizes.
