GREAT ETHIOPIAN RUN
Addid Ababa, Ethiopia
Next event: 2016 TBC
The Great Ethiopian Run held in Addis Ababa is without doubt one of the largest of all the 10K races worth doing. The great running event is held in a country where, as we all know, running is the national sport and home to a number of the best athletes on the planet.
This is also Africa’s biggest mass participation race, attracting more than 40,000 runners every year. You’ll absolutely enjoy this race, but be prepared, there’s a chance you’ll be gasping for air, as the route will lead you at 2,300m above the sea level.
