The Uganda Marathon is a 7-day adventure in beautiful, rural Africa. Whilst the marathon is the culmination of this amazing experience, the real uniqueness of this event comes from the week spent engaging with projects and the local communities that the marathon supports.

During this amazing week, you’ll need somewhere to lay your weary head, and we have a couple of different options that you can choose for accommodation during the week long trip:

The Glade

The Glade is a beautiful relaxation and social area, purpose-built for The Uganda Marathon race week. It’s a place to grab a drink, swap stories from the day beside the campfire, and generally relax with your fellow runners after a long day exploring Uganda and connecting with the local community.

No matter which package you register for, you’ll have full access to the Glade as well as the facilities of your own accommodation. The site includes:

  • A campfire with seating that is lit each night
  • A fully stocked bar with a variety of cold Ugandan drinks
  • A snack shop with nuts, local sweet & savory snacks and biscuits
  • A dining area for evening meals
  • A natural stage to watch the evening’s entertainment

For those who choose to stay at The Athletes’ Village, The Glade is just a short 2-3 minute walk from your accommodation and you’ll enjoy your evening meals in the dining area there. If you choose to stay in Marabou Village then your accommodation will be a slightly longer 5-10 minute walk from The Glade, but you’ll be eating your meals at Marabou Village and will have full access to bar, pool and relaxation areas of your accommodation.

The Athletes’ Village

The Athletes’ Village is an accommodation atop a hill, with a beautiful 360-degree view of Masaka. You’ll be situated at the highest point in the centre of Masaka and you’ll be able to see Uganda Marathon Start Line from your room. The facilities at The Athletes’ Village are basic with just a restaurant area and bar, however, you’ll be a short 2-3 minute walk to The Glade where you can spend evening relaxing by the campfire.

Breakfast at The Athletes’ Village is served in the restaurant area, and evening meals will be eaten in The Glade.
