Marathon of Awasa 2015 · 9 days


DATES: 25 June – 4 July

The trip

Ethiopia is, in addition to one of the most fascinating countries on Earth, the cradle of World Athletics. Legendary Abebe Bikila and Haile Gebrselassie names give luster to a nation that lives by and for sport. The Edition number 31 of the Shambel Abebe Bikila Marathon of Awassa, a popular and highly regarded test, is a unique opportunity to run the mythical distance with some of the best specialists in Africa. 42.195 meters to 1,700 meters in a city bathed by the waters of a bustling Lake with great fishing.
The route designed, focused on the athletic event, also offers the possibility to train in Bekoji, the city of middle and long distance champions, and discover the magic of mountain ethnic Dorze, drunk from the gaze of the crocodiles and hippos in the Nechisar National Park and take the pulse to the capital, Addis Ababa, where we will also train.
