"The most brutal and beautiful race I've ever run!"

More than a marathon, an adventurer's paradise in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places in Africa.

Join us for a week of exploring, trekking, swimming and safaris. Relaxing in the sun and drinking cold beers with new friends. Making a difference where it's really needed and, of course, taking on the challenge of a hot, hilly, 5k, 10k, half or full marathon in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, along the edge of Africa's Great Rift Valley!

The RiftMaz is a intimate, inclusive event with a very happy atmosphere. Solo travellers, couples, groups and families looking for the experience of a lifetime - this is for you.

Created by runners who fell in love with this part of Uganda and the people in it (you'll soon see why!), Running the Rift is entirely not for profit, with all proceeds going to the Kyaninga Child Development Centre
