Grace Villa @10 Anniversary - Marathon details
The Grace Villa Kabale Marathon is a unique event set to wind through one of the most beautiful regions in the world: Kabale. Marathon day is for everyone, from the seasoned runner to first-timers, with 5km, 10km, and 21km marathon options, as well as a much-needed cheering squad and volunteering roles throughout the day. Whether you choose to walk, jog or run, the stunning scenery will propel you, as will the cause, and the cheering locals and children ready to high-5 you along the routes.
It will all start at dusk, as we gather at Kabale stadium to line up alongside the best of Uganda’s distance runners, members of Kabale local running groups, and friends from Uganda, the USA, Finland, Belgium, and more. Even a Prince is rumoured to have already registered! Then we will set off.
Through Kabale town past shops with sleepy local traders setting up for the day, then up and down misty hills lined with legendary pre-historic trees, stone quarries, little villages, and even Lake Bunyonyi of Black Panther fame. This unique race is one you’ll never forget. The final stretch will be tough, but the electric atmosphere and encouraging locals will carry you through crowd-lined streets towards the stadium where the finish line, a cheering crowd, and a cup of obushera await you.
