About the SODIC Charity Run:
Following a five-year hiatus, the SODIC Charity Run will return in exactly three months, organised by The TriFactory and in support of the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation. Featuring three distances, a 10K Race, 5K Race, and 3K Fun Run, the SODIC Charity Run is perfect for the whole family and suitable for runners of all ages and abilities. Select your distance and get ready to kick off the running season at the SODIC Charity Run, on Friday, September 15th!
In addition to the fantastic destination and fast & flat race course, The TriFactory will be operating the MYLAPS timing system for the 10K Race and the 5K Race, 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, the SODIC Charity Run 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 SODIC Charity Run will take runners on a world-class running course, offering participants the choice of two competitive running races (10K & 5K), and the 3K Fun Run.
SODIC West is the largest planned mixed-use development in Egypt's Sheikh Zayed area and is a double of Zamalek. SODIC West boasts 6,000 residents today and has a catchment area of 60,000 people. 60,000 SODIC West is made up of several developmesis interwoven together to create an Egyptian destination like no other: Beverly Hills, Allegria, Westown, includes Westown Resdencies and Courtyards, CASA, Designopolis and The Strip.
SODIC West is located in KM 38 Cairo Alexandria Desert Road, and is also accessible from Dahshour Road via Juhayna Square.
