Pyramids Half Marathon
The Pyramids Half Marathon is Egypt's flagship road running event, taking place annually at Egypt's most famous historical destination and the world's last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World: the Great Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids Half Marathon takes thousands of runners on a tour of the Pyramids Complex, showcasing the three legendary pyramids of Pharaohs Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, as well as the six lesser ones built for their queens.
Beginning in 2020, the Pyramids Half Marathon added a short-format running race to the event alongside the 21K and 10K, and since then the 5K has proven to be incredibly popular. The 5K benefits from a relatively flat course, while the 10K and 21K will both face the downhill stretch towards the Sphinx and the now-infamous incline on the way back up. The Pyramids Half Marathon is a fun, challenging, and unforgettable #RaceThroughHistory, perfect for runners of all ages and abilities.
