Ethiopia Calling

runners warming up in Ethiopia

Run-Fast, the ground-breaking sports management company, has added another string to its bow with the addition of specialist tours to its portfolio. And the event management to retail project is launching its new service with a bang - a trip to Africa for the Great Ethiopian Run.

Run-Fast is organising an ambitious 10-day trip which offers a place in Africa’s biggest road race in a 40,000 field, opportunities to train at the same high-altitude locations in Addis Ababa as Ethiopia's top athletes and the chance to discover a remarkable country. The package includes 9 nights' accommodation, flights and transfers, entry to the Great Ethiopian Run (10K), pasta party and trips. Tour party members will also have the chance to meet local hero and international running legend Haile Gebrselassie.

The trip is open to runners of all levels and is intended to motivate both experienced and novice runners. Run-Fast staff will be on hand to help throughout the tour, aided by the support of local Ethiopian guides. This promises to be a unique running experience and one participants will treasure for many years.

Run-Fast reports that places are limited and filling quickly. Details at the Run-Fast Tours website.
