After holding successful maiden regional races in Mbale, Gulu and last weekend in Mbarara, the main edition of the 2018 MTN Marathon is on this Sunday, November 25 in Kampala.

The event will start at 7 am at Kololo Independence Grounds. A number of changes have been made with the aim of always making the event bigger and better, especially in the 42km marathon.

Unlike previous editions where participants in the 42km had to go through suburbs like Ndeeba, Katwe among others, this time they will only rotate around the city centre.

The proceeds from the MTN Marathon will be used to improve Maternal health around the country. Money collected in the regional runs will be invested in those regions. 

The guest runner will be Health Minister, Dr Aceng Ruth.
