A Race, An Adventure, A Chance to Give Back, A Community!
The Uganda International Marathon is the largest fundraising event in Uganda, we bring runners from all over the world to rural Uganda for an adventure that truly helps a community! Join our mailing list to find out about the projects we support, life changing stories from 2016 runners and updates on the bigger and better #UGM2017.
Safe to say that the Uganda international marathon was the best thing that I’ve ever done and the most amazing time of my life – it really was a race like no other. Huge thanks to everyone who has made it so special (esp the world’s best 3 running buddies)

A Week Long Adventure
Combining volunteering, adventure, music, a festival, street party, organising a children’s sports day, activities and more. This isn’t your average holiday or challenge.
With An Incredible Challenge
The trip culminates in a 10k, half or full marathon with 3,000 local runners through a beautiful scenic course. Over half our runners have never done a marathon before – it’s a race for everyone.
And a chance to explore
Uganda is the bucket list destination. All the safari animals. The last 400 mountain gorillas in the wild. Source of the Nile. The most friendly people. You’re going to love it here.
You can take part in an adventure of a lifetime
Run in the UGM2017 10K, half marathon or full marathon. On the 4th of June 2017 line up at the starting line of an incredible challenge having had the best week of your life!
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE TO COMMUNITIES AND PEOPLE
The Marathon is supporting the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development. There are no fundraising targets or minimums, simply an opportunity for you to help amazing people in Uganda directly. You’ll spend time with and volunteer at the project you’ve supported, meeting the very people whose lives you have helped change. The Marathon is the largest fundraising event in Uganda – and you can be part of it.
100% fundraising goes to the project
We are extremely proud to be able to say that 100% of all money that’s fundraised goes to the project or charity that you, the runner, chooses.
Sustainability Above All
Our primary philosophy is hand up not hand out giving – we work with Ugandan organisations to help them become more sustainable long term.
