Running the Rift 2017 - Runners' Reviews

The reviews and letters our runners give us after their trip make us smile more than you can imagine. We also can't believe we're the ones getting the thanks when it's these guys that made it so special!! Here are a few of the comments from 2017:


“Thanks for organising the best holiday ever...I’ll definitely be back!”
— Lawrence
“Ellie/ Paul, 

Just wanted to express again what an amazing experience this trip has been. From the moment I landed until I left the hotel this morning everyone and everything has been so great. You both have organized and put on an awesome week in Africa all to benefit a wonderful charity. I am very proud to have been apart of this event. I’m a tad heartbroken that I was physically unable to finish but I know the medics made the right decision, for which I am grateful. I am anxious for a rematch with that tough course!

Again, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful place, and allowing me to enhance my passion for running in a new country!!!”

— Erik

“This was the most beautiful race I’ve ever been to. The altitude, heat and profile also made it exceptionally brutal!”
— Jiri
“We wanted to tell you how wonderful our time was in Uganda and to thank you for everything you did. It was truly a life changing week.”

— Teresa

“The most amazing run I might ever do...the photos can never do this course justice. I stopped dead in my tracks when I got to the top of the hill and the trees cleared out to show me the view of the valley. I did not expect to fall in love with this country but how could I not!”
— George
“Hey guys! Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your effort organising this race. I honestly think it is the best race event I have seen/provided medical cover for, with such great atmosphere and in a such a beautiful location.”

— Tansy, from the Exile Medics team
