The Great Ethiopian Run (October-December)
The Great Ethiopian Run is an annual 10-kilometre road running event which takes place in late November in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This event is organized by Great Ethiopian Run, which is an independent non-governmental organization operating in Ethiopia since 2001. The organization has a mission of staging mass-participation athletic competitions in Ethiopia. The annual Great Ethiopian Run has the legendary athlete Haile Gebre Selassie as its icon and the event has been adorned by local community, expats and international participants. This event is not only a good chance to mingle with Addis residents but also serves as a platform of helping the needy via fund raising for example. Most of all, you enjoy the cheerful and noisy crowd running in various distance and gender race categories.
