Cairenes to break a sweat for climate on Friday

Ingy Deif, Tuesday 2 Nov 2021

Cairo Runners, the leading running community in Egypt, will host the #ClimateConnection Run on Friday in collaboration with the British Council in Egypt.

ClimateConnection Run

The run, the first of its kind, will start at Zed Park in Sheikh Zayed, with the meeting time scheduled for 7:30 am, and the run will start at 8 am for a 5 km route or an alternate 2.5 km route.

The event coincides with the 26th United Nations Climate Change Summit (COP26), which is taking place this week in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Cairo Runners is one of the earliest pioneers in encouraging Egyptians to adopt a healthier, more energetic lifestyle, taking to the streets for early morning runs each Friday using different routes through the greater Cairo area.
