    Despite boasting many other picturesque monuments and landmarks, The Great Pyramids of Giza will always be a trademark of Egypt; what’s more grand or breathtaking! Taking pride in our ancestors’ world-famous heritage, The TriFactory announces the return of one Cairo’s most anticipated sporting events for the second time. The Pyramids Half Marathon is set to take place on Saturday, the 22nd of February.

    “We are proud to announce holding this year’s half marathon at the Great Pyramids of Giza, hand in hand with the Ministry of Youth & Sports and the Ministry of Antiquities.” – Ayman Hakky – Founder & CEO of The TriFactory 

    After last year’s massive success, this year’s edition, with distances of 21K, 10K, and 6K, welcomes a total of 4000 athletes from 77 countries. It also features fully facilitated paved roads that will be convenient for both pedestrians and runners, as well as My Laps Timing; a state-of-the-art technology used at the Olympic Games. With such preparations, it is safe to say that contestants are offered more than just a beautiful backdrop. Three days before the event, registration will take place at Downtown’s The Greek Campus, where participants get to register, as well as receive their race gears.

    The Pyramids Half Marathon is just one of The TriFactory’s long list of achievements in the field of organising endurance sports events, which include multi-sport festivals, obstacle course races, training camps, and, of course, marathons.

    Ever since the beginning of its journey in 2015, The TriFactory delivered events like the Sahl Hasheesh Endurance Festival, the Magdi Yacoub Aswan Marathon, Tough Mudder Egypt, as well as the Pyramids Half Marathon 2019.

    With such a list under its belt, we are sure that The TriFactory will deliver an exceptional experience to all its attendees.
