Please arrive at the starting lines 30 minutes before for a short briefing about the race and a meet-and-greet with other runners.

After the race, a number of fun-filled activities are planned. We invite you to join us for beers, cheers and brochettes at the finish line from 1 PM to 4 PM on Saturday, 11 March 2023. The finish line is 400m away from the park’s western exit (Kamembe side), just on the main road near the RDB visitor centre. 

We will also have an After Party at Ishara Beach Resort, starting at 6 PM, with one of Rwanda’s best DJs.
