Run the Rift Marathon – 11/05/2016


Run a 10k, half or full trail marathon in the breathtaking Rift Valley in Uganda this November. Join local East African and international runners to run at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain range, the Rwenzori Mountains, where the Rift Valley begins.

The race is part of a five day adventure including accommodation, full board and other activities such as a kid’s race and an acclimatization 5k run or walk around the rim of a stunning crater lake.

This event is 100% not for profit with all the proceeds going to Kyaninga Child development Centre; helping local disabled children. Uganda is a runner’s dream and this is going to be a very special race – join us!

Site is Still Under Construction, But We’re Live

I’m pleased to announce that, although our site is clearly still under construction, we have decided to end our Kickstarter campaign and launch the site.

A considerable amount of work has been accomplished over the past few weeks – and much more is in store, but we’re ready to start posting your blogs and reviews (product and races), our race calendars are ready to be loaded, Runners Connect Social Network is live and ready for your posts (and selfies)… basically the general framework is there and we’re ready to start adding your content.

The quickest way to get yourself registered to start your blog is by emailing In your email include your desired user name, a short bio that we can add to the site, any social media links you’d like us to include, and don’t forget to attach a photo! Once we enter your information, you will receive an email with login details and creating a password.

Lastly, the quickest way for this site to grow and truly become a site created for runners by runners, is for you to take a minute and share it via social networks and in your running groups. We really appreciate it!

Welcome to shares the same passion for running as you do – we are a site created for runners, by runners!

Though we will continually evolve based on the requests and suggestions you provide, we plan to incorporate a “runners only” social network Runners Connect”, race listings, training resources and articles, product reviews and more!

If your passion is running, we want to hear from you!
We are currently seeking runners who are interested in blogging, writing product reviews and sharing ideas for our site. While we have many ideas of our own, we want your input on what will make us your go-to website for everything running related. Use the contact us link to get in touch, post in our Forum, or create a profile on our social network, “Runners Connect” to share your thoughts. We look forward to hearing from you!
