Thousands gathered early Friday morning on 28 February to participate in Cairo's Half Marathon

The race, organised by local running group the Cairo Runners, took place at Cairo Festival City, a development on the outskirts of the capital. There were three options for runners to choose from: the 21km half marathon, a 7km race, and a 1km family run.

Excitement built before the races kicked off as numbers gradually increased, and organisers said that there were even more entrants than the 4,000 who had initially registered.
