Cairo Runners is the first street running initiative in Cairo, providing Cairenes with exhilarating mini marathon experience every Friday morning.
It all started with a simple desire of running in the streets of Cairo. It sounded impossible at the beginning; having pollution, traffic and not a very equipped running atmosphere, Ibrahim Safwat our founder chose not to give up with all those obstacles but decided to start something beautiful. Having the dream to change Egyptian’s lifestyle to a healthier one where it would be a normal thing for people to hit the streets of Cairo and exercise which was never a familiar thought before.
Spreading the word here and there our first run took place 14th of December, 2012 having more than 60 runner showing up that day.
The series of runs took place in different neighborhood in Cairo every Friday to ensure a safe and healthy non polluted environment for our runners. The average number of runners every week now reached 2,500 runner. .
