    The intensified training, the sound of people struggling, breathing, and the masses cheering runners on as they arrive at the finish line; these are pretty much all the things we love about marathons. The real accomplishment, however, does not lie in finishing first; it lies within the devotion to train, and the sheer time and the massive effort that go into getting yourself at marathon-level fitness.

    This March, Cairo will be running for FIVE straight days, from the 9th until the 13th of March. Cairo Marathon Hub by Cairo Runners is coming to Downtown Cairo. After work that has lasted years on end to renovate some of Downtown Cairo’s most iconic buildings, and upgrade the infrastructure to suit contemporary requirements for residential, cultural, and commercial spaces, it is only fit to draw attention to a Downtown Cairo that has got much more beautiful and organised.

    The five-day event will not only be home to marathons; it will also involve talks from special guests and amazing surprises. Cairo Marathon Hub will take place in El Adly Street’s Kodak Path, and runners will receive a race kit. 

    Al Ismaelia For Real Estate Investment Company is the event’s sponsor; this, of course, makes sense considering that the company aims “to become a leading real estate investment company that acquires, space manages, refurbishes, renovates, and leases historic buildings to provide a contemporary experience that merges Downtown’s historical legacy and modern culture.” As such, the company “focuses greatly on reviving the Downtown area, by supporting and enhancing the arts and culture scene, and creating a positive and vibrant destination with a wide array of events, to attract people to live, work, shop, and socialise.” In other words, Al Ismaelia For Real Estate Investment Company are the people behind these recent renovations that have given us an opportunity to fall in love with Downtown Cairo all over again. They are also the folks behind Downtown Cairo’s Facebook page, and official Instagram account; these accounts offer stunning images of Downtown Cairo, and they keep us updated on all the important events happening in the area.
